For the victims of the Shade Ransomware, otherwise known as Troldesh, this was an excellent week as the threat actors released over 750,000 decryption keys for their victims.

The Shade operators claimed to have shut down their operation at the end of 2019 and decided to release all of the master and individual decryption keys so that victims could recover their files for free.

Using these keys, Kaspersky has updated its ShadeDecryptor so that it can now decrypt any user who was encrypted by the Shade Ransomware in the past.
