The No More Ransom project celebrates its fifth anniversary after helping over six million ransomware victims recover their files and saving them almost €1 billion in ransomware payments. It is an online portal launched in July 2016 and a public-private partnership created by law enforcement and industry leaders such as McAfee, and Kaspersky and also including BleepingComputer, who joined the project in 2018.

The decryptors available in the No More Ransom repository have helped more than six million people to recover their files for free. This prevented criminals from earning almost a billion euros through ransomware attacks. Currently offering 121 free tools able to decrypt 151 ransomware families, it unites 170 partners from the public and private sector. The portal is available in 37 languages.
