Free decryption tool for GandCrab ransomware

A new decryption tool that counters GandCrab ransomware by allowing victims to retrieve their files for free has been launched.

The tool is a collaborative effort by Europol, the UK’s National Crime Agency and Met Police, the FBI, cybersecurity company Bitdefender, and others.

The decryptor neutralises GandCrab 5.0 through to GandCrab 5.2, as well as allowing users to retrieve files encrypted by older versions of the ransomware.

It is available to download from both Bitdefender Labs and the No More Ransom project.
