The WannaCry ransomware found its way back to continue spreading after the creators have come up with a different code. The sad thing is, more hackers are taking advantage of this malicious software and creating their owns out of it. The recent reports show that the WannaCry ransomware infected more than 300,000 computers across 150+ countries.
It all started after the ‘Eternal Blue’, a tool made by NSA to get access to Windows was dumped on the internet by a hacker group called ‘Shadow Brokers’. Someone took advantage of it and created this ransomware in hope to make some money out of it. Unfortunately, this has been the biggest ransomware of its kind. Many of the PCs running on Windows XP and 7, and 2003 including Vista, Server 2008, and 2008 R2.
Now all the above-mentioned versions of Windows users can have a sigh of relief if infected by the ransomware. Matt Suiche, the founder of CloudVolumes along with his team has made a tool named wanawiki which can generate the key to decrypt your PC. So basically, this tool is nothing but a key generator tool which can help you gain access to your data back and delete the Wannacry software.

But the way this tool works is, it detects the prime numbers used by the ransomware to rebuild the key used to encrypt your computer. The quick way is the only possible way that you can decrypt. Because, once it gets encrypted, the prime numbers used to encrypt might get overwritten. So, use it quickly and keep a hope that the prime keys are not overwritten.
Suiche claimed that the tool has worked on infected PCs running Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, as well as Windows 7. It’s also assumed that it would work on every OS version between Windows XP and Windows 7, including Windows Vista. Good that the Windows 10 PCs won’t be affected by the WannaCry ransomware.
This is just a method you can try if you are infected.
