Ransomware fightback begins as Intel, Kaspersky and Europol launch decryption key portal

From V3.co.uk

"Efforts to tackle the scourge of ransomware have been boosted by a new initiative designed to educate people about the threat and offer keys that can unlock devices without having to pay the fraudsters.

The No More Ransom portal has been created by Intel Security, Kaspersky Lab, Europol and the Dutch National Police in response to the rising threat from ransomware, which had almost 1 million victims in the EU during 2015.

The portal will contain material designed to educate users about the threat of ransomware and where it comes from, but it is the access to some 160,000 keys that is most notable.
