I am an independent security researcher with particular interest in ransomware. I created and run the website ID Ransomware that helps victims identify what ransomware encrypted their files, and whether it can be decrypted. I also create free decrypters and tools for victims when possible, and help the community with information on new ransomware threats.
Other programs I have created include CryptoSearch, a tool that helps find encrypted files and list or archive them, and RansomNoteCleaner, a tool that cleans up ransom notes left by ransomware.
Any money funded by Patreon will help me cover my bills and fund web hosting so I can continue to fight ransomware in my free time.
