A new kind of ransomware threat is affecting business and personal computers all across the globe, which is being dubbed as WannaCry Ransomware. You can find out everything you need to know about WannaCry Ransomeware by visiting this link here. Until now, there was no fool-proof method to recover data from computers attacked by this WannaCry Ransomware. But now thanks to a guy named Benjamin Delpy, we have a free WannaCry Decryption tool that you can download from the link below and use it to unlock files for free.
The new malicious cyber attack WanaCryptor 2.0 was unleashed by hackers a few weeks ago, which has spread around the world to infect millions on computers since then. PC attacked by this ransomware gets automatically locked, including files and data saved on it, which can only be unlocked by paying hackers a hefty amount in ransom. Thankfully, it’s all in the past now because even if you have been the victim of this attack, there is an easy way to unlock your files on computer for free using a WannaCry Decryption tool.
Newly Released WannaCry Ransomeware Decryption Too Unlocks Computers & Files For Free
It all started when a group of hackers that goes by the name of ‘The Shadow Brokers’ decided to offer a hacking tool picked up from the NSA servers for free. Anyone in possession of this tool can use it to remotely hack computers running Windows operating system.
The malicious cyber hacking software WanaCryptor 2.0, also known as WCry, is being used by miscreants to spread one of the worst ransomware attacks in modern digital age.
It’s been over a week since the ransomware started attacking computers across the globe and since then those who have been affected by this cyber attack have been anxiously searching for ways to unlock their computers, files and recovery data. It looks like finally the wait is over as security researchers seemed to have developed a solution to unblock files attacked by WCry ransomware.
Previously, we saw a French security researcher Adrien Guinet from Quarkslab finding a solution to fix the impacted devices running Window XP. He successfully found the prime numbers that made up the RSA private key used by WannaCry ransomware and used it to crack the WannaCry ransomware encryption process.
He uploaded WannaKey tool to this GitHub profile and has made it free to download for everyone in the hope that other researchers would be able to use its algorithms to find cure for other versions of the Windows OS.
It seems to have works as another security researcher named Benjamin Delpy has created a new tool using the Adrien Guinet’s logic. This new tool is named ‘WanaKiwi’ that unlocks computer and files attacked by WannaCry ransomware. It’s compatible with Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Server 2003 and Server 2008.
You can use WannaKiwi tool using the command prompt. You can download the tool from Github. Use it and let us know if it worked on your computer in the comments section below.
