Another good news in the world of ransomware attacks! Czech multinational cybersecurity software organization Avast has recently developed and published a decryptor that will help those affected by AtomSilo and LockFile ransomware attacks get back some of the encrypted files for free.
BleepingComputer announced yesterday that Avast also released a free decryption tool for the victims of Babuk ransomware.
According to the antivirus software company, this decryptor may be unable to decrypt files in unknown, proprietary, or non-existent formats.
During the decryption process, the Avast AtomSilo decryptor relies on a known file format in order to verify that the file was successfully decrypted. For that reason, some files may not be decrypted.
Even though the gangs that deliver the ransomware on victims’ systems employ distinct attack strategies, the decryption tool can be used for both ransomware types as they are very similar.
According to Avast Threat Labs, this decryption tool was developed together with RE – CERT malware researcher Ji Vinopal, who has recently discovered a flaw in the AtomSilo ransomware strain.
