Developed in close partnership with Europol and the Romanian Police, and with support from the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, the tool lets victims around the world retrieve their encrypted information without paying tens of millions of dollars in ransom to hackers.

The new tool can now decrypt data ransomed by versions 1, 4 and 5 of the GandCrab malware, as well as all versions of the ransomware for a limited set of victims in Syria.

More information on GandCrab and the decryption tool can be downloaded from Bitdefender Labs or the No More Ransom website – a joint project between the National Dutch Police and Europol to combat ransomware at the European Union level.
