Victims of the CoinVault ransomware have a chance to retrieve their data without having to pay the criminals, thanks to a repository of decryption keys and a decryption application made available online by Kaspersky Lab and the National High Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) of the Netherlands’ police.
Crypto-ransomware rarely means good news for targets, but when it comes to TorLocker malware (detected as Trojan-Ransom.Win32.Scraper by Kaspersky Lab), the victims can decrypt most of the encrypted files without parting with their hard-earned cash.

Once again, fake "Incoming Fax Report" emails carrying malware are being sent out to random users.
