Free Site Recovers Files Locked By Cryptolocker

Previously, I shared some info about Cryptolocker (ransomware), discovered in September 2013 which is a malware that encrypts a windows user’s data files including documents, photos and music. So what was the only option for a Windows user to get that data back: unfortunately pay ransom to hackers whatever amount they demand? But, now good news is that two security companies: FireEye and Fox-IT have launched a site: which can be used by anyone wants to recover their files locked by Cryptolocker. How the site works apparently by sending an email link that victims can use to download a recovery program to get back all of their files. Thanks to these two companies as the service is free, so enjoy 🙂
