The decryption keys for the Crysis ransomware have been released for public use by malware’s developers and are targeted at helping affected users decrypt Wallet ransomware encrypted files.

Ransomware will always be around and users really need to be secure and alert because of that fact. Don’t forget to use basic steps for preventing ransomware, including using free anti-virus ransomware software. If you ever do get infected, the following tools will turn out to be your best friends and help you unlock your files.

Crysis ransomware decryption keys

The keys were posted by users on the BleepingComputer forums by a newly registered member by the name of lightsentinelone. (You can find the thread under Dharma Ransomware Support Topic.) The thread contains a Pastebin link which contains a C header file that includes 198 decryption keys that were confirmed valid and that have used by security researchers to create a Wallet Ransomware decryptor.

The ransomware is fairly widespread and therefore, many of its victims were helped by these files. If you get infected with ransomware, make sure to store your encrypted files in a safe place in case a decryptor is released in the future.

Bothb Eset and Avast have released developed a Crysis decryption tools based on the keys mentioned above. You can check them both out on the companies’ official websites.
