In a surprising move...The TeslaCrypt ransomware developers have have stopped distributing TeslaCrypt and released their master decryption key to the public.  Various TeslaCrypt decryptor tools have been updated to include this key permitting anyone who gets compromised with TeslaCrypt a way of decrypting their data without paying the ransom.

Further information can be found in the ESET blog post.
