A computer repair shop employee…

A computer repair shop employee named Michael Gillespie decrypts ransomware in his downtime and helps victims for free. The FBI honored him with a Community Leadership Award in 2017. He isn’t charging for his services because he feels too guilty taking money from people just trying to get their baby photos back. He’s responsible for 90% of the ransomware decryptors available (for free on their website) been honored by the FBI but can barely make his mortgage payments. For anyone else interested in helping out this sweet, frustratingly impractical nerd, there is a patreon link on his website ID Ransomware which is linked in the article.
