CyberArk has created an online version of 'White Phoenix,' an open-source ransomware decryptor targeting operations using intermittent encryption.

The company announced today that although the tool was already freely available through GitHub as a Python project, they felt an online version was needed for the less tech-savvy ransomware victims who don't know how to work with the code.

Using the online White Phoenix is as simple as uploading files, hitting the "recover" button, and allowing the tool some time to restore whatever it can.

Currently, the tool supports PDFs, Word and Excel document files, ZIPs, and PowerPoint. Also, the online version has a file size limit of 10MB, so if you're looking to decrypt larger files or virtual machines (VMs), the GitHub version is the only way to go.
