Legion ransomware is a deadly malware and it ends up renaming and encrypting your important files on a Windows PC. After encrypting the files, it displays a message – “your data is encrypted with latest encryption algorithm”. In order to decrypt the files, the ransomware advises to contact someone over an email address. Among some of the other changes made to your system, it changes the Windows desktop wallpaper, displays a popup notification about encrypted files and locks some of the system functions so that you cannot manually undo the changes.
But thanks to the tools available from AVG, you can decrypt the files that were encrypted by Legion ransomware easily without having to pay anyone or contact anyone. This tool works in a wizard like interface and guides you through all the steps. Here is how:
