Kaspersky announces 'death' of Coinvault, Bitcryptor ransomware


Well, yes. Kapersky services their customers as they should.

I don't think Kapersky have a lock on the keys, btw. Now that they are available I imagine others could produce similar tools. Kapersky are simply the fastest off the block with building this into their software and their company did some of the initial work examining CoinVault so helped bring this about.

But yes, Kapersky Labs wont be emailing a tool to resolve this to random people who aren't their customers, you are right.
