Kaspersky Labs, who are probably most famous for their anti-virus and internet security solutions, have teamed up with the National High Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) of the Netherlands’ police and the Netherlands’ National Prosecutors Office to create a free ransomware decryptor tool in an effort to help in the fight against the CoinVault and Bitcryptor ransomware.

Nemucod is a JavaScript downloader malware that was previously used to distribute TeslaCrypt, but the more recent Nemucod versions dropped the TeslaCrypt payload in favour of their own ransomware implementation.  Since the Nemucod ransomware encrypts the first 2,048 bytes of a file using a 255 bytes XOR key, the decrypter only requires an encrypted file of at least 510 bytes in size as well as its unencrypted version, which are specified with Emsisoft's simple drag-and-drop interface.  (Nemucod was recommended by Bleeping Computer.)
