Microsoft, TeslaCrypt RansomeWare, Decrypt Tool

Microsoft has released a rescue tool for thousands of Windows machines that were infected in August by file-encrypting ransomware TeslaCrypt.

Along with yesterday's 'Patch Tuesday' updates, Microsoft upgraded its malicious software removal tool to tackle TeslaCrypt, or Tescrypt as it calls it.

Microsoft's Windows telemetry data picked up a large spike in detections for TeslaCrypt in late August, jumping from below 1,000 detections per day earlier that month to over 3,500 on August 24.
