Emsisoft has released a free decryption tool for the LooCipher ransomware. This decryptor has been created by security researcher Michael Gillespie with assistance from Francesco Muroni.
What is LooCipher?
LooCipher is a ransomware which is distributed via phishing emails that include malicious Word documents. Once executed, the ransomware encrypts a victim's data and appends the .lcphr extension to encrypted file's names.
How does it work?
If you’re a victim of LooCipher ransomware and still have the encrypted files with you, then download the decrypt_LooCipher.exe program and save it in your desktop.
The bottom line
This free decryptor allows LooCipher victims to decrypt their encrypted files without the need for paying the ransom.
