A Ransomware response Kit has been designed to help IT staffs to respond faster and more efficiently to infections which might lock employees out of their PCs. The kit would help security professionals and system administrators to streamline the process of responding to ransomware infections. As per the security researcher, ransom should never be paid as this will reinforce this type of attack. The kit itself features six elements which include instructions and removal tools to get rid of FBIRansomWare and Coinvault ransomware, as well Trend Micro’s ransomware removal tool and instructions on how to use it. It also includes a FireEye tool to decrypt files encrypted by notorious ransomware CryptoLocker as well instructions on removal and threat mitigations.
