Decryptor for MegaLocker and NamPoHyu Ransomware Released

Posted by & filed under Security News.

Emsisoft has released a decryptor for the MegaLocker and NamPoHyu ransomware that has been targeting exposed Samba servers. Victims can now use this decryptor to recover their files for free.

Last month we reported that the MegaLocker NamPoHyu Ransomware infections are targeting exposed Samba servers and encrypting their data remotely. At that time we stated that users should not pay the ransomware as a method to decrypt the files may have been discovered.

We are happy to announce that a decryptor is now available from Emsisoft that can decrypt victims of the MegaLocker and NamPoHyu for free.

Once downloaded, make sure you have an Internet connection and then start the decryptor. Once started, browse to and select a ransom note and the decryptor will attempt to recover your decryption key.
