CryptoLocker … Some Good news

Finally some good news for those of you who have had your files encrypted by CryptoLocker.

The experts at FireEye and FoxIT have provided a way to decrypt your Cryptolocker encrypted files for free.

Apparently, during the recent hijack of the Tor network, they managed to obtain a copy of the database the criminals who ran Cryptolocker as they were trying to hide it away. A fantastic coo for the law enforcement and the security industry.

Fortunately the process on their website  is relative simple, and will be a welcome relief to those still suffering from the loss of their files.
