Teslacrypt ransomware shuts down and releases Master Decryption Key and TeslaDecoder.

What a good and unexpected news for both victims of this ransomware and security researchers. Teslacrypt project now shuts down saying sorry for the inconvenience. Security researchers from ESET contacted TeslaCrypt developers towards their website on the dark web, previously provided to infected users for paying the ransom. Surprisingly TeslaCrypt developers agreed to provide to all users a master decryption key. One of the biggest ransomware names in now history. Interesting facts is that the shutdown of the project comes couple of months after the latest upgrade and version 4 release.teslacrypt decrypt master key

Apparently the master decryption key works on all TeslaCrypt versions including  3 and 4 with the .xxx, .ttt, .mp3, .micro, files extension. Not log after the master key release users can also use decryption software. BloodyDolly come out with an updated decoder after the shutdown announced and master key release (Download). The current TeslaCrypt rank of popularity was number three after CryptoWall and Locky, which makes this one of the most popular ransomware. However do not be fooled. The end of something is a beginning of a new. We don’t know what will be the new project of ransomware developers. They may come out with something new and unknown yet for us. All ransomware are fairly different and fairly similar, all with a different target and demands. Now that this is a history, computer gamers should not worry for their video game files any more.

According to security researchers from bleepingcomputer the distributors are moving to may be a better ransomware strain CryptXXX and not being really sorry. Since Teslacrypt has been sulfuring cracks into the past, moving to CryptXXX will be the same story. Not log after CryptXXX 2.0 release, Kaspersky updated the RannohDecryptor tool and users can also decrypt .crypt files. In the meantime users must stay protected. Ransomware is still the highest virus threat of the current day and you do not have to underestimate it. Consider purchasing anti malware tool to avoid any ransomware infections.
