Petya Author Releases Master Decryption Key for All Versions of the Ransomware

From an article by Mark Wyciślik-Wilson in the BetaNews web site:

“The Petya ransomware — and several variants — wreaked havoc with data around the world, but now the author of the original malware has released the master decryption key.

“Janus Cybercrime Solutions has provided a key that work with all “official” variants of Petya (meaning NotPetya is not included). The key was released to — of all places — Mega, and its authenticity has been verified. While Petya has already been cracked, the key offers the fastest and most reliable decryption method yet.”
