  • Original article - I'm very excited to share these free ransomware decryptors, provided by the hardworking experts in the Avast Threat Labs. Eleven decryptors, to be exact, for several strains of the scourge.

    Our decryptors are available for the following strains of ransomware:

    Alcatraz Locker
    Apocalypse
    BadBlock
    Bart
    Crypt888
    CrySiS
    Globe
    Legion
    NoobCrypt
    SZFLocker
    TeslaCrypt

    While decryptors aren't guaranteed to work in every unique situation, they are another valuable tool in your security arsenal. If the unfortunate need arises, I sincerely hope that we can help save the day. (That said, our security team is keeping these decryptors updated, as much as possible, as strains evolve.)

    In addition to the decryptors, which can be downloaded here, our threat labs have also provided a detailed description of each of the ransomware strains the tools are designed to fight against. Knowledge is power.

    If any of these tools have helped you, or if you have any feedback to provide us about the decryptors, we welcome it -- keep safe out there!
