A decryptor for the ThunderX ransomware has been released by cybersecurity firm Tesorion that lets victims recover their files for free.

ThunderX is a relatively new ransomware that became active towards the end of August 2020.

This week, Tesorion was able to find a flaw in the ransomware's encryption so that victims can decrypt their files without paying a ransom.

This decryptor can decrypt files encrypted by the ransomware's current version and have the .tx_locked extension
