A new decryption tool for the latest versions of GandCrab has been released for free as part of a collaborative effort among the FBI, Europol, private security firm Bitdefender, and a number of international law enforcement agencies from across Europe, participants announced in mid-June. 

The new tool, available now at nomoreransom.org, neutralizes GandCrab versions 1 and 4, as well as versions 5 to 5.2, the most recent used by cybercriminals. Earlier decryptors for the ransomware have helped more than 30,000 victims recover data and save $50 million in unpaid ransoms.
