Ransomware virus's long-ass password is cracked and published

r3v

Via Boing Boing:

Ransomware virus's password is cracked, published: Cory Doctorow:
A virus that encrypts your files and refuses to give you access to them unless you pay a ransom has been cracked. The password for unlocking your files is now widely available:

This virus swaps files found in the "My Documents" folder on Windows with a single file protected by a 30-digit password. Victims are only told the password if they buy drugs from one of three online pharmacies.

The 30-digit password locking the files is "mf2lro8sw03ufvnsq034jfowr18f3cszc20vmw". Using the password should restore all the hijacked files.

I think Cory's BoingBoing post and the quoted text just about cover it. I'm just posting it here to help spread the (pass)word a little.

Oh yeah, and to say to the virus author: Hackers > VirusAuthors
