Identify the ransomware that’s encrypted your data

If your defences have been breached, ID Ransomware can help put you on the road to recovery.

It’s no secret that the best way to deal with ransomware is to avoid getting infected in the first place, while tools like BDAntiRansomware, Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware and WinAntiRansom can help keep you safe.

And if your defences are bypassed and some data lost, there may still be hope, as companies and individual researchers are producing recovery tools all the time.

There’s just one problem: it’s not always obvious which family of ransomware has attacked your system. And if you don’t know the infection, it’s more difficult to look for a cure.

ID Ransomware is an online service which can identify 54 common ransomware types, based on data from your system.

Just point the site as the file containing the ransom and payment information, or upload a sample encrypted file, for a quick verdict.

If it’s a supported ransomware type, search for threat name to get the latest recovery information.
