List of Best Free Ransomware Decryption Tools

Ransomware attacks aggressively seek to exploit network weaknesses and infect unsuspecting victims. Ransomware is a type of malware that locks files or computer systems and demands a ransom (usually in cryptocurrency) in exchange for unlocking them. Ransomware can spread via spam emails, unsafe file downloads, or exploitation of system weaknesses. After spreading, this malware will encrypt files on the infected computer and block user access to the data. Ransomware often displays a ransom...

TPM Key and How to Back It Up in Windows 11

What will happen if you lose the TPM key? Here's how to back up the TPM key on Windows 11. A Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a microprocessor designed to perform basic security operations, especially encryption keys. The TPM is placed on the computer's motherboard and connected to other systems via the hardware bus. A TPM-enabled computer can generate a cryptographic key and encrypt it so that it can only be decoded by the TPM. This method, also known as wrapping or binding a key, can help...

How to Add TPM (Trusted Platform Module) to VMWare Virtual Machine

A TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is a chip that offers cryptographic functions, such as generating and storing encryption keys to enable features like Windows Hello, BitLocker, and others and confirm that the operating system and firmware are on your device are what they should be. VMware Workstation Pro supports TPM version 2.0. You can add a Virtual Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to an existing virtual machine to provide enhanced security to the guest operating system. Then, you can also...

How to enable TPM 2.0 Windows 11

How to enable TPM 2.0 Windows 11

Trusted Platform Module (TPM) technology is hardware-based security technology. TPM chips are crypto-processors that are secure for performing cryptographic operations. The chip includes several physical security mechanisms to make it resistant to interference, and malicious software cannot damage TPM security functions. Some of the primary advantages of using TPM technology are: Generate, store, and limit the use of cryptographic keys. Authentication of the device by using the unique RSA key...
