Ransomware remains as one of the most brutal infection among the malware family that locks your computer or encrypts your files. What more, once infected you cannot get your data back unless you pay a ransom. Even if you decide to pay, there is no guarantee that you’ll get your data back. International software security group, Kaspersky Lab, runs a website, NoRansom which lists Ransomware decrypter tools to help those who are infected.
Kaspersky NoRansom website
This website was launched last year with Kaspersky joining forces with Dutch law enforcement to help victims of CoinVault ransomware restore access to their data. Subsequently, the website has been updated with other free Decrypter tools for victims of deadly Cryptors such as TeslaCrypt, CryptXXX, and more.
If you are infected with a Ransomware or looking at a source to help in case you land in such a situation, you can visit the NoRansom website to find out if they have released a Decrypter tool. Kaspersky has also provided easy-to-understand information on How to restore files, to assist you to decrypt the data.
Here is list of Decrypter tools available as of today,
- WildfireDecryptor tool to decrypt files affected by Wildfire.
- ShadeDecryptor tool to decrypt files affected by Shade version 1 and version 2.
- RakhniDecryptor tool to decrypt files affected by Rakhni, Agent.iih, Aura, Autoit, Pletor, Rotor, Lamer, Lortok, Cryptokluchen, Democry, Bitman (TeslaCrypt) version 3 and 4, Chimera.
- RannohDecryptor tool to decrypt files affected by Rannoh, AutoIt, Fury, Crybola, Cryakl, CryptXXX versions 1 and 2 (files encrypted by Trojan-Ransom.Win32.CryptXXX version 3 are detected, but not decrypted).
- CoinVaultDecryptor tool to decrypt files affected by CoinVault and Bitcryptor
- XoristDecryptor tool to decrypt files affected by Xorist and Vandev.
We expect more tools to be added by Kaspersky in the future. Make sure you remove the malware from your system before using any of the above Decrypter tool else it will repeatedly lock your system or encrypt files.
