As reported by and posted on the BBC News Technology website, Security Analysts with FireEye and Fox-IT were able to access a database that was being used by the people profiting off of CryptoLocker infections and have been able to create an online portal that will provide CryptoLocker victims with the unlock key, free of charge.
Please be advised that each system that is infected will need to send an infected file THAT DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY SENSITIVE OR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION through the portal to get the decryption keys needed to unlock each affected system.
