3.0.1 Tesla Crypt, according to security researchers virtually impossible to crack. Earlier versions of the ransomware had vulnerabilities, which could be made decryption software to recover affected systems.

Decryption tools like Tesla Crack, Tesladecrypt and Tesla Decoder have no effect on systems infected with the latest version of the Tesla Crypt-ransomware, writes of Cisco Talos security team. Through a vulnerability in the way the encryption key was stored in previous versions of the ransomware could decryption kits are made.

So far, there is no method known that systems infected with the new Tesla Crypt-ransomware can be decrypted. On the blog of Talos describes the research team in detail the improved encryption algorithm where Tesla Crypt 3.0.1 uses.

Files on systems affected are the ransomware encrypted and the only way to undo it is restoring a backup or paying the ransom, say the researchers. The Talos researchers see ransomware as the ‘black plague’ of the Internet. Tesla Crypt would be in the top five of the most common ransomware.
