CryptoLocker Decryption Tool released

There is some good news for those victims whose files have been locked by the Crytpolocker ransomware. Victims can now use the free CryptoLocker Decryption Tool from FireEye and Fox-IT to decrypt the Cryptolocker encrypted files. This Cryptolocker removal tool might just help you your data back!

CryptoLocker targets Internet users – especially users of Microsoft Windows. It could infect PC’s using various sources, the most common being a legitimate email attachment. While there were ways you could prevent Cryptolocker ransomware by taking a few steps, there was no real way to get your files back, if your PC did become infected. The only way for the victim then, was to pay the ransom money – typically around USD 300 – and get the ‘key’ to decrypt the encrypted files.

However, researchers at FireEye and Fox-IT have now come together and released a free tool that will decrypt the Cryptolocker encrypted files. To use this tool, you will have to upload any single encrypted file to their server. After it identifies the key to decrypt the file, the tool will then be able to decrypt all the other files on your PC.
