Launched in June 2020, Fonix Ransomware (AKA Xinof and FonixCrypter) has begun to target an increased number of people. Just last Friday a Fonix ransomware Admin tweeted that they have ‘shut down the ransomware operation’. They also released the master decryption key.
Fortunately, Kaspersky, multinational cybersecurity and anti-virus provider, also released a decryptor, which is free to download. All businesses have to do is use an updated version of Kaspersky’s RakhniDecryptor, download the decryptor to a device with encrypted files and start the programme.
