IT security firm ESET released a free decryptor for ransomware victims, offering a helping hand to anyone whose data or devices have been hit by the Crysis family (detected by ESET as Win32/Filecoder.Crysis). The tool was prepared using the master decryption keys, recently released via a forum on BleepingComputer.com.
The Crysis malware family began gaining prominence after one of its main “competitors”, TeslaCrypt, ceased operations earlier this year. Spreading via multiple channels, it has been detected by our systems thousands of times all over the globe.
If you have been a victim of Crysis ransomware, you can find and download the ESET Crysis decryptor from our free utilities page. If you need additional information on how to use the tool, please refer to ESET Knowledgebase.
Please note, that new variants of this ransomware family may use new keys, making the affected files un-decryptable.
