it can decrypt version 3.0 and version 4.0 of TeslaCrypt encrypted files. This means that anyone who has TeslasCrypt encrypted files with the .xxx, .ttt, .micro, .mp3, or encrypted files without an extension can now decrypt their files for free!
I was doing my usual morning news website read and stumbled across this on Beeping Computer: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/se ... ption-key/

Yes true. On Risky Biz this week Pat mentioned that the Crims were winding it down, so they were asked if they were going to cease operations, could they give the master key.. and apparently said here you go... along with a "We're Sorry"

Probably so they can sleep at night in their Bahama's luxury villa

Don't get too excited, there is still a tonne of malware out there people!
