A ransomware attack can cripple an organization overnight because it encrypts the contents of the hard disk drives using very powerful ciphers like AES. A ransomware is essentially a malware but it works by encrypting the files of a computer and then demanding a ransom to be paid to the cyber-criminals behind it in exchange of decrypting these files. While more and more people have started to heed the advice of the security experts about keeping regular backups of their important files and if possible of their entire hard drives, there could still be situations when you would want to decrypt your files after suffering from a ransomware infection. In those times, you can use the free Trend Micro Ransomware File Decryptor tool.
This is a portable tool and works on all the Windows machines. It is able to decrypt the files encrypted by a large number of ransomware. It can handle the new and old ransomware including WannaCry, TeslaCrypt and their variants. You can download the tool to your PC, launch it and select the ransomware that has encrypted your files.
If you do not know the name of the ransomware, this tool can also help in identifying the ransomware name. For this you have to select one of the encrypted files for analysis. After selecting the ransomware, you have to select the folder where your encrypted files are located. Once this selection is made, it will automatically find all the encrypted files and make an attempt to decrypt them. In some cases, it may need a few extra steps too.
The decrypted files are put in the same folder where the original files were. Depending on the ransomware and their new versions, the decryption is not always successful, but it is always a good idea to try this tool.
