List of ransomware decryption tools

By | May 25, 2017

list of decryption toolsAs a result of my ransomware research I’m now following a bunch of ‘tweeters’ that work in the field of cyber security. One tweet pointed me at this list of ransomware decryption tools. Seen this list is a big mess, I cleaned it up and make it available here.

In the first column the name of the ransomware. Column 2 tells if the solution is a key for decryption or a script or tool for you to run. 3rd column is the name of the party making the solution available and download URL in one. Hope it helps some one some day.

Can I recover files from ransomware

There are 3 methods for recovery. If no decryption is available then method 2 and 3 remain:

  • Method 1: Check if a decryption utility is available.
  • Method 2: Check if Shadow Copies (Previous Versions) survived the attack. There are utilities available that make this easier. If Shadow copies are available and are not targeted by ransomware there may 100% chance to recover files.
  • Method 3: Try Undelete or File Recovery Software. Chances are rather poor, on average 30% of pre-encrypted files can be recovered.
