How to Use Trend Micro Ransomware File Decryptor v1.0.1668 to Recover Your Encrypted Files
Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts your files and demands a ransom to restore them. Ransomware can affect any device that stores data, such as computers, smartphones, tablets, and external hard drives. Some of the most common ransomware families are CryptXXX, TeslaCrypt, SNSLocker, AutoLocky, BadBlock, 777, XORIST, XORBAT, CERBER, Stampado, Nemucod, Chimera, LECHIFFRE, MirCop, Jigsaw, and Globe/Purge.
If you are a victim of ransomware, you may feel helpless and desperate to get your files back. However, paying the ransom is not a guarantee that you will receive the decryption key or that your files will be intact. Moreover, paying the ransom encourages the cybercriminals to continue their malicious activities.

Trend Micro Ransomware File Decryptor v1.0.1668 is a free application that can decrypt files encrypted by certain ransomware families.
