Free Decryptor Available for LockerGoga Ransomware Victims


The LockerGoga ransomware has been around since at least 2019, when it was used in attacks targeting several industrial organizations, including Norwegian metals and energy giant Norsk Hydro and US-based chemical companies Hexion and Momentive.

The individual who operated LockerGoga is believed to be part of a cybercrime ring that also used the MegaCortex ransomware in attacks.

According to Swiss law enforcement, the cybergang has conducted ransomware attacks against over 1,800 individuals and organizations in 71 countries, causing losses of more than $100 million.

LockerGoga’s operator, who was arrested in October 2021 as part of a collaborative effort between Europol, the Norwegian Police, and law enforcement agencies in Ukraine and Switzerland, is pending trial.
