On 17 June, a new decryption tool for the latest version of the most prolific ransomware family GandCrab has been released free of charge on www.nomoreransom.org. This tool allows victims of ransomware to regain access to their information encrypted by hackers, without having to pay demanded ransoms.

The decryption tool counters versions 1 and 4 and versions 5 to 5.2, which are the latest to be used by cybercriminals.

As far as I remember that the developers of this ransomware has announced that they have stopped working on GandCrab and they have shut it down.

Correct.

Hopefully, this new decrypter will allow for previously encrypted files that were saved to now be decrypted. Unfortunately, concerns still don't backup their files in spite of the ransomware threat.
