News Ransomware Gang Breached: Decryption Keys Released
#1
[Image: 1*TYAzzTJ60x-qg5N81ElU9A.png]

                                    A man by the name of Tobias Fromel, a German software developer, got his revenge on the gang that released the Muhstik ransomware, after he had his files encrypted by the malware, he had to pay the ransomware to regain access to his files. After he had done so, he went back through and examined the malware, from there he was able to understand how it worked, this eventually lead him to breach the gang's main server and retrieve the information necessary to provide decryption keys as well as a free decryptor. 


                 While what Tobias has done is illegal, it is expected that he won't be prosecuted given his actions and motive for doing so. But with that said, all entities are encouraged to work with authorities in order to resolve a situation. 


                  Original article can be found here.


                                        That was the news folks, have a good day, and stay safe out there.
