    This has been a week of pure junk ransomware releases and decryptors. As most of these smaller ransomware variants never make it into actual distribution, I call this a win for the good guys. The big news this week is the release of the master decryption key for XData and an updated decryptor for Amnesia2.

    Contributors and those who provided new ransomware information and stories this week include: @BleepinComputer, @malwrhunterteam, @PolarToffee, @fwosar, @struppigel, @demonslay335, @DanielGallagher, @malwareforme, @jorntvdw, @FourOctets, @campuscodi, @JAMESWT_MHT, @Seifreed, @JakubKroustek, @emsisoft, @siri_urz, @Malwarebytes, @MarceloRivero, @kryptoslogic, @avast_antivirus, and @CERT_Polska_en

    If you are interested in ransomware or infosec, I suggest you follow them on Twitter.
