Another Ransomware Falls

Another ransomware has been rendered inert - this time from Kaspersky Labs. They cracked CryptXXX and have offered a free fix for those that have fallen victim to this nasty piece of software. If you are currently panicked that you're files have been hijacked - and you don't want to pay the ransom to get them back, head on over to the source page at the link below and go grab the RonnohDecryptor tool.

The ransomware encrypts files both on the victim's PC and on attached storage. Kaspersky notes there's a short delay applied to the external storage encryption “to confuse victims and make it harder to detect which websites spread the malware”.
