What should I do if my infrastructure has been encrypted with MedusaLocker?

Unfortunately as of now there are no free decryption tools in the market that have the capability to decrypt Medusa Locker encryptions. 

Only the cyber criminals can use their software to do so, however, there are many times that cyber criminals might ask for more money or even deliver tools that will not decrypt your files.

Despite the fact that some people pay for the ransom amount, there are a lot of cases reported where the victims will not receive the decryption software. 

In such cases the data remains encrypted and nobody can help. 

So if you have been encrypted by MedusaLocker submit our Ransomware Incident Response form in order our specialised team can help you get your files back.
