Master Key for Hive Ransomware Retrieved Using a Flaw in its Encryption Algorithm

Researchers have detailed what they call the “first successful attempt” at decrypting data infected with Hive ransomware without relying on the private key used to lock access to the content.
“We were able to recover the master key for generating the file encryption key without the attacker’s private key, by using a cryptographic vulnerability identified through analysis,” a group of academics
