No More Ransom (NMR) is an initiative of Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre, the National High Tech Crime Unit of the Netherlands’ police and McAfee to help victims of ransomware retrieve their encrypted data without having to pay criminals. NMR showcases the value of public-private cooperation in disrupting criminal businesses with ransomware connections. Victims should no longer be forced to either pay a ransom or lose their files. By restoring access to infected systems free of charge, it provides users with an alternate choice.
Launched in July 2016, NMR has assisted more than 200,000 people, with +150 supporting partners from law enforcement, the private sector and academia. The free resources are available in 36 different languages, and includes more than 90 tools capable of decrypting over 100 different types of ransomware.
