Those who have had their sensitive information and data files compromised or stolen outright by ransomware hackers now have a needed ally in their corner: free decryption tools from Kaspersky Lab which will allow you to decrypt encrypted files without having to pay ransom to cyber attackers. The manufacturer of the new decryption tool claims that the free downloads (4 different types) will forcibly restore encrypted files kept hostage by ransomware cyberattack, for those affected by numerous ransomware Trojan sources. The Kaspersky decryption tool generates private decryption keys for the user, with which it then allows them to unlock stolen files.
Types of File Decryption
Kaspersky free trial ransomware decryption tools will fix files held ransom by:
- Shade, version 1 and 2
- Bitman (TeslaCrypt) version 3 and 4
- CoinVault, and BitCryptor, among others.
Keeping Ransomware in Check
Largely spread via spear-phishing campaigns, and also through Russian hackers looking to weaken American and other global networks and business data centers, ransomware has been a black plague of the cyber community in the last few years or so beginning with CryptoLocker in the fall of 2013. It has been a woeful trajectory for vulnerable IT networks and business owners who’ve become victims when all they were doing was business. Hackers are doing business on the other side of the moral coin, though, and we all have to be more prepared. With the more strategic tools coming to our aid like the Kaspersky ransomware decryption tool, it appears there is hope where thieving opportunists have threatened the entire cybersphere.
The medical and healthcare industry has been perhaps the worst victim of ransomware, in terms of monetary and PR damages. HIPAA fines were in the millions as of Q2 2016, much of that being doled out to University hospitals and other healthcare facilities that store patient information that was hacked and held for ransom. The Kaspersky decryption tool couldn’t come at a better time, as HIPAA compliance, PCI compliance, and other related issues to ransomware rear their ugly heads. Other vulnerable industries include government, financial, fiduciary and stock trading, and any that routinely store client information that could be easily exploited by ransomware hackers.
Ransomware Sources Warning
In 2015, millions of Windows and CoinVault users were found to have been exposed to possible or actual ransomware attack. CoinVault is known to be able to routinely bypass established security tools through a private Windows-based accounts. The ransomware Trojan acts as a cyber espionage agent, by discovering the location of the computer, avoiding certain countries with better defensive networks. And, Windows is not the only application or database that has put millions at risk. We’ve all heard the stories about LinkedIn, PayPal, the NSA, NASA, and the FBI. The resulting questions now must be, “Where next?” as well as “Where do I sign up for my free trial decryption tools?”
IT Experts Consult on Ransomware Remedy
Thanks to Kaspersky Lab, and Check Point Technologies (whose Cerber 2 decryption tool worked until Cerber hackers figured out that the remedy had been unleashed, and worked quickly to re-encrypt its infiltrator algorithms), there are software firms working overtime to develop these tools that safely return sensitive data to their proper places. We can steer you to the decryption tool you’ll need for full file recovery. Colorado Computer Support is the leader in providing managed IT services in Colorado Springs. Have questions?
