CryptXXX: free decryptor or discount? Hmm…

I see there is much excitement in the media about CryptXXX’s ‘Christmas discount’, the ransom having been reduced from 1.2 bitcoin to 0.5 until the end of December. Of more significance is the fact that Kaspersky have once more been able to update their Rannoh decryptor to handle CryptXXX version 3. Available from directly from Kaspersky or from NoMoreRansom.org.

Commentary from The Register – Don’t pay up to decrypt – cure found for CryptXXX ransomware, again – and from SC Media, in an article with some interesting commentary from industry stalwarts such as Anton Ivanov and Paul Ducklin, even though most of the story is about the ‘discount’.
