Cisco Talos stated today that it has a Teslacrypt decryptor tool up and running and ready for download that will work against any variant of this ransomware.
Researchers have spotted threat actors flocking to CryptXXX after TeslaCrypt authors closed shop.
The authors of the TeslaCrypt ransomware have publicly released the master decryption key that unlocks files encrypted by the malware in efforts to close up shop and go home for good.
Ransomware accounts for around a quarter of cyber-threats targeting internet users in the UK.
Bitdefender released a free tool that can be used to clean systems infected by the ransomware strains Locky, CTB-Locker, and TeslaCrypt.
Trend Micro researchers spotted a new ransomware variant dubbed Petya that is delivered to victims who believe they are linking to a resume stored on a cloud storage site like Dropbox, but instead are hit with malware that locks up their computer.
