FREE Decryptor for GANDCRAB Ransomware Released!
« on: October 25, 2018, 04:50:57 pm »
Good news!

A free decryption tool has been officially released today by BitDefender Labs, in collaboration with Europol and Romanian Police.

One week ago, the cybercriminals behind GandCrab released decryption keys for Syrian citizens, only. With those keys and further developments, a versitile decryption tool is a reality. You can find instructions on installing and running the decryptor as well as a download link from the article linked below:

How to Decrypt Files Encrypted by GandCrab Ransomware (Free)

Check it out and reply with your results. Maybe it might not work with absolutely all versions of the Gandcrab ransomware.

Best Regards,
Execute

Yes, it is still working. This decryption tool was made before the release of the version you mentioned. The decryptor works with versions up until v5.0.3 (including), but every newer version afterward v5.0.4 onward is incompatible with the decryption tool. At least for now.

The new GandCrab decryptor is a fact - works for every version of GandCrab until 5.1 (including 5.1). It does not work for version 5.2!
Grab it from BitDefender Labs: https://labs.bitdefender.com/2019/02/new-gandcrab-v5-1-decryptor-available-now/
