In a good news for those struggling to gain access to locked data after the “WannaCry” attack hit Windows users in 150 countries, Stellar Data Recovery on Friday claimed it has cracked the ransomware at its R&D labs and is currently working on five cases from India.
As you are probably aware, there has been a significant amount of press regarding the ransomware attack that started late last week and propagated across +200,000 Windows PCs in 150 countries around the globe.
On May 12, 2017 a new variant of the Ransom.CryptXXX family of ransomware, detected as Ransom.Wannacry, broadly began spreading and impacting a large number of organizations.
What is WannaCry?
WannaCry, also referred to as WannaCrypt or WCrypt, encrypts data files and demands users to pay a ransom in bitcoins. The ransom note received indicates that the payment amount will double after three days and if payment is not received within seven days, the encrypted files will be permanently deleted.
Stellar Data Recovery are continuing to see an increased amount of activity and we are happy to announce that the company have successfully cracked this ransomware to get data back safely.
As Wannacry is hot topic to these days we advise you to purchase Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery Professional, which helps in handling Wannacry problems, to encash the opportunity. All data can be saved after successfully scanning the infected drive without the need to pay ransomware in bitcoins.
