All CoinVault and Bitcryptor ransomware victims can now recover their files for free
If your computer was infected with the CoinVault or Bitcryptor ransomware programs you’re in luck — at least compared to other ransomware victims. Chances are high that you can now recover your encrypted files for free, if you still have them.
Researchers from Kaspersky Lab and the Dutch Public Prosecution Service have obtained the last set of encryption keys from command-and-control servers that were used by CoinVault and Bitcryptor, two related ransomware threats.
Those keys have been uploaded to Kaspersky’s ransomware decryptor service that was originally set up in April with a set of around 750 keys recovered from servers hosted in the Netherlands.
