Can ransomware be decrypted?

It is possible in the following cases:

  • The malware authors made an implementation mistake, making it possible to break the encryption. That was the case with the Petya ransomware and with the CryptXXX ransomware.
  • The malware authors feel sorry about their actions and publish the keys, or a “master key”, as in the TeslaCrypt case.
  • Law enforcement agencies seize a server with keys on it and share them. One such example is CoinVault.
