A decryptor for the LockerGoga ransomware has been made available by Romanian cybersecurity firm Bitdefender in collaboration with Europol, the No More Ransom project, and Zürich law enforcement authorities.
Identified in January 2019, LockerGoga drew headlines for its attacks against the Norwegian aluminium giant Norsk Hydro. It’s said to have infected more than 1,800 victims in 71 countries, causing an estimated $104 million in damages.
The ransomware operation received a significant blow in October 2021 when 12 people in connection with the group, alongside MegaCortex and Dharma, were apprehended as part of an international law enforcement effort.
