GandCrab vs. BitDefender Cat and Mouse Continues

`Bitdefender just “one upped” GandCrab with a new free decrypter available from the NoMoreRansom project." The “No More Ransom” website is an initiative by the National High Tech Crime Unit of the Netherlands’ police, Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre and McAfee with the goal to help victims of ransomware retrieve their encrypted data without having to pay the criminals."

Support for many languages.

The decrypter works with versions V1, V4 and V5 up to V5.1 versions. Notice that v2.0 is missing. Bitdefender fully expects the authors of GandCrab to continue to update this in what many call a cat and mouse game between the adversaries. However, this working version has already saved victims many millions of dollars.

More detailed information on GandCab is found at BitDefender’s site:
