Bitdefender believes the criminal group behind the GandCrab ransomware has lost an estimated $1 million in ransom payments after the company released a free decryption utility for GandCrab victims last week.
The Romanian antivirus maker says that at least 1,700 GandCrab victims were able to successfully decrypt GandCrab-locked files within hours after the tool’s release. Most of these users were located in South Korea, China, India, and the US, according to statistics released by the company.
