PYSA Ransomware

The PYSA (Protect Your System Amigo) Ransomware or Mespinoza Ransomware has been operating effectively on the internet for a long time. He is famous for numerous attacks. So much so that the FBI has released a warning of the dangers of this ransomware. 

It has been in operation since December 2019 and remains active today. In order to pressure victims to make payments they disclose part of the encrypted files to the public, which can bring serious consequences for the company. 

PYSA is a RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) tool that outsources attacks, this ransomware is for sale to people who do not have the ability to develop the virus. This type of tactic increases the proportion of attacks, many groups are acting in the same way. 

Victims of the PYSA Ransomware

In March 2020, the FBI released a warning on their Twitter about the increase in PYSA ransomware attacks, targeted attacks on American and British schools. Many had part of their information leaked on the Dark Web. 

Government authorities can do little for the victims of attacks, if the company does not have an up-to-date backup it will be practically forced to pay the ransom amount to cybercriminals. 

This may seem like the only viable way out, but it’s not! We at Digital Recovery were able to develop technologies capable of recovering files encrypted by ransomware without the need for a decryption key.

Ransomware Recovery FAQ

Every day, ransomware attacks get better and better. After a successful attack attempt, ransomware quickly maps the user’s most important files to begin encryption. Microsoft Office files, databases, PDFs and design are among its main targets.
Ransomware is designed to be unnoticeable, so it can disable all system defenses without being noticed and start the process of encrypting the files. Even though ransomware can go unnoticed by the system, it can still be noticed by the user, because ransomware uses the system’s own resources to do the encryption, this can slow down the system. Ransomware also changes file extensions. So be on the lookout for these signs: System slowdown and extensions being added to files. To find out more, talk to our experts.
Yes, it is possible. You can restart the computer in safe mode which will limit the ransomware’s action as system resources will be locked. You can also disconnect the computer from the Internet which can interrupt the hackers’ connection to your system, it is worth remembering that there is ransomware that works even without being connected to the Internet. You can also start the diagnostics to identify threats with your antivirus, the vast majority of antiviruses have this function. But there are cases where the encryption was interrupted by the user, some files had already been affected and this caused an error in the encryption and even the hackers could not restore the files, even with the decryption key. In these cases only a data recovery company, such as Digital Recovery, can recover the files. To find out more, talk to our experts.
Yes, attacks usually happen mainly on holidays and weekends during the early morning hours. These days are chosen because there are not many active users on the system, which prevents the attack from being discovered before the encryption is completed. To find out more, talk to our experts.
