And now, if you've managed to contract one of these four ransomware strains, you can retrieve your files for free with No More Ransom's latest decryption tools:

  • FortuneCrypt ransomware
  • Yatron ransomware
  • WannaCryFake ransomware
  • Avest ransomware

ZDNet covered more on the contributors of these free decryption keys:

"Now more free decryption tools have been added to the No More Ransom arsenal, as Kaspersky Lab has provided tools for decrypting Yatron and FortuneCrypt, while Emsisoft has released a free decryptor for WannaCryFake.

The authors of Yatron based it on Hidden Tear, a well-known form of open-source ransomware, and it encrypts victims' files with the extension .Yatron. However, researchers at Kaspersky identified mistakes in the crytopgtaphy of Yatron, allowing them to create the decryptor."
