IntelCrawler has announced discovery of a new crypto ransomware caqlled Locker. Locker operates in a similar way as its predecessor CryptoLocker. When infected, it encrypts documents on user’s computer and demands ransom of 150 USD for the decryption key. However, IntelCrawler managed to penetrate some of the servers of malware’s operators and retrieve universal decryption keys. They now work on application that would allow users to decrypt their files without paying ransom.
