Recovering Ransomware

Ransomware Attack

All that cybercriminals need to attack a company’s systems and encrypt all the data is to find a gap in the information security system.

Firewalls with open ports, careless screening of attachments sent by e-mail, and administrative users with weak passwords are some of the thousands of security holes through which crackers/hackers can invade a network of servers and computers.

Due to the large number of well-known companies that have been attacked in recent years, such as Sony, Adobe, and eBay, we can conclude that the simple fact of being connected to the Internet already makes us possible victims of these cybercriminals.

The financial damage caused by cyber attacks runs into billions of dollars. Ransoms are paid via cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin – BTC or Monero – XMR).

When paying the ransom, victims realize the great difficulty in finding and arresting the criminals, because due to cryptocurrencies being untraceable, it is unfortunately not possible to know who and where those receiving the money are.

The amounts charged by hackers vary depending on the size of the company and importance of the data. File Servers, Database Servers, Servers, Storages, and RAID systems are always in the sights of cybercriminals, as they allocate the most sensitive data of companies.

Common Problems

Environmental Vulnerability

Being without any kind of Firewall that is customized to prevent Ransomware Attacks, can make it easier for hackers to access the environment.

Open Gates

Very common in environments that do not have a consolidated remote access management policy, thus leaving open gates in a compromising and unnecessary way.

Clicking Malicious Links

By accessing malicious sites, malware is automatically installed on the user's machine, which aims to facilitate access to the environment as a whole, so that hackers can begin the process of encrypting both production and backup data.

Downloading Cracked Programs

By running a cracker to improperly license software, you end up bypassing the system and leaving security holes for easier intrusions. Cheap can turn out very expensive.

Inserting External Media

Be very careful with these types of media that are of dubious origin, because they usually come with malware already installed.

Outdated Operating System

One of the biggest and most common mistakes that professionals make is not updating their software.

Recovering Ransomware? 6 Golden Tips for your Company to Prevent a Cyberattack

1.

Always keep the operating system of your company’s servers up to date;

2.

Since weekends and long holidays are the most favorable days for cyber attacks, it would be interesting to create a differentiated backup scope for these days;

3.

Develop a strategy where employees are always going through training and receiving updates on security protocols, so that they are alert and do not click on links with dubious promotions, or enter malicious sites;

4.

Because criminals have very well orchestrated strategies, and because they are experts in cyber attacks, it is very difficult to prevent invasion attempts, so an interesting solution is to create strong passwords that are difficult for them to crack

5.

Investing in Information Security should be continuous in your company, monitoring risks is one way to maintain a safer environment;

6.

Having an experienced Technology team that knows how to prevent problems and has a robust Backup scope is essential amidst all this extremely delicate scenario.

The Main Types of Ransomware

It is currently the most active form of Ransomware on the world stage, in which it encrypts the data stored on servers and storages and, in exchange, demands a considerable ransom.

This type of Ransomware is the least lethal, as its major goal is to slow down servers and very rarely prevent access to data.

The major goal of this type of Ransomware is to block access to the data that is stored in the logical volumes of servers and storages, but the data is not effectively encrypted

This is the worst type of Ransomware known today, because besides encrypting the data, the hackers even threaten to release the stolen data on the Internet if the ransom is not paid within a few hours or a few days after the attack.

FAQ | Frequently Asked Questions

Technical Questions

Ransomware is a type of malware that through a highly robust encryption process, hijacks data and, as in the real world, demands a ransom for the impacted company to be able to access the data again without the encryption initially applied. Usually ransom payments are made via cryptocurrencies.

This type of crime has taken on gigantic proportions in recent years, especially after the rise of cryptocurrencies, which are virtually untraceable, thus increasing the number of attacks around the world.

Currently there are four (4) types of Ransomware that can invade and compromise your server:

  • Crypto Ransomware: This type is considered as the most used today, because the big goal is to encrypt as many files as possible and then demand payment in cryptocurrencies, which can be Bitcoin or Monero;
  • Doxware Ransomware: Of all the types, this is the worst of the ransomware attacks, because not only does it encrypt all the company’s data, but it also threatens to expose some sensitive data, such as customer names, confidential projects, and banking information to the Internet;
  • Locker Ransomware: The major goal of this type of Ransomware is to lock the logical volumes of your server/storage and consequently prevent access to all the data stored on the affected volumes;
  • Scareware Ransomware: They are the least troublesome for the victims, because they do not block or encrypt the data, but slow down the operating system and require a ransom to get the system working normally again.

Soon after the cybercrime occurs, hackers demand the victims to pay a ransom in untraceable cryptocurrencies in order to send them the private keys to access the encrypted files. We know that the keys are not always sent, so think carefully before negotiating directly with the kidnappers.

Your case was hardly targeted and unique. Most attacks happen randomly, so much so that a considerable part of the cases of cyber attacks come from clicking on malicious links or opening e-mails containing compromising attachments, which appear to be true and are sometimes very attractive, just to deceive the victim.

A cybercrime can occur because hackers are exploiting a vulnerability in operating systems, browsers or software in general, which unfortunately is present in your environment and, depending on the type of Ransomware Virus, the attack can automatically propagate to other servers within your local area network (LAN), further increasing the extent of the problem.

Sometimes criminals can stay collecting information for weeks, even months, so that after they get all the data they need, they wait for the best opportunity, usually a weekend, a holiday, or during the early morning hours, which are times when the company is not very active and the probability that someone will notice the attack is low.

Today, with all the new data privacy rules around the world, everything has become more serious, the laws have become stricter, and if data is leaked or lost, the fines and damages will be much greater.

Besides, losing data can be a decisive factor for your business to close down, both because of the damaged reputation and the loss of strategic data, necessary to make more assertive decisions.

For these reasons, consider PhD Recovery to support you in the process of recovering data encrypted by Ransomware.

In the vast majority of scenarios it is possible to recover the encrypted data without paying the ransom. This is only technically feasible because of in-house development of a technology that is able to reconstruct the data in a complete and structured way.

Consult our team of specialists, so that we can analyze whether or not your project is eligible to use our proprietary and exclusive solution.

The project can be executed remotely or physically, by taking the storage device containing the affected data to our advanced lab address so that one of our Data Center specialists can safely perform advanced diagnostics and begin the process of recovering the files affected by ransomware.
