RANSOMWARE: NoMoreRansom now offers free tools to rescue your files – Europol
Posted By Iain Fraser – Cybersecurity Journalist
Ransomware attacks have been growing in number and severity for years, with headlines focused on ransom demands that have climbed to amounts once unthinkable. While the data is alarming, it does not mean that you are helpless against the high-tech extortionists orchestrating these attacks. The No More Ransom initiative offers over a hundred free decryption tools to rescue your hostage files.
Six years of public-private partnership
Celebrating its sixth anniversary today, No More Ransom provides keys to unlocking encrypted files as well as information on how to avoid getting infected in the first place.
Launched by Europol, the Dutch National Police (Politie) and IT security companies, the No More Ransom portal initially offered four tools for unlocking different types of ransomware and was available only in English.
Six years later, No More Ransom offers 136 free tools for 165 ransomware variants, including Gandcrab, REvil/Sodinokibi, Maze/Egregor/Sekhmet and more. Over 188 partners from the public and private sector have joined the scheme, regularly providing new decryption tools for the latest strains of malicious software.
