Ransomware is malware that locks your computer and mobile devices or encrypts your electronic files. When this happens, you can’t get to the data unless you pay a ransom. However this is not guaranteed and you should never pay!
Prevention is possible. Following simple cyber security advice can help you to avoid becoming a victim of ransomware.
Unfortunately, in many cases, once the ransomware has been released into your device there is little you can do unless you have a backup or security software in place.
Nevertheless, it is sometimes possible to help infected users to regain access to their encrypted files or locked systems, without having to pay. We have created a repository of keys and applications that can decrypt data locked by different types of ransomware.
At the moment, not every type of ransomware has a solution. Keep checking this website as new keys and applications are added when available.
