Cyber security firm Avast has released today decryption utilities for AtomSilo and LockFile  ransomware that allow the victims to recover their files for free.

Experts pointed out that AtomSilo and LockFile ransomware only have a few minor differences, for this reason,AVAST provides a single decryptor

Both the AtomSilo and LockFile ransomware strains are very similar to each other and except for minor differences, this description covers both of them.We prepared our very own free Avast decryptor for both the AtomSilo  and  LockFile strains.


Avast highlights a limitation of the decryption process because its Avast AtomSilo decryptor relies on a known file format in order to verify that the file was successfully decrypted. This implies that some files, such as files with proprietary or unknown format, may not be decrypted.

Babuk ransomware operators rebranded their ransomware leak site into Payload.bin and started offering the opportunity to other gangs to use it to leak data stolen from their victims.
