No More Ransom saves ransomware victims $108 million

In the three years since its launch, Europol’s No More Ransom initiative has helped over 200,000 ransomware victims regain access to their files without paying the attackers, thereby preventing $108 million in ransom payouts. No More Ransom offers 109 different decryptor tools, 14 of which were added in 2019. The portal is available in 35 languages.

Europol stated that “the efforts against GandCrab – considered to be one of the most aggressive ransomware attacks last year, epitomizes such a success: Since the release of the first GandCrab tool in February 2018, nearly 40,000 people have successfully decrypted their files, saving roughly $50 million in ransom payments.”
