Backup encrypted by ransomware? We can recover BAK files

BAK files, commonly used as backup copies to protect critical data, have become prime targets for ransomware attacks, a pernicious form of malware that hijacks data and demands payment for its release. The encryption of BAK files by ransomware has serious implications for data security and the operations of individuals and organizations.

Using advanced phishing techniques, software vulnerabilities or social engineering, the criminals gain access to the victim’s system. Once inside, the ransomware identifies BAK files and encrypts them.

After encryption, a ransom message is displayed, often via pop-ups or ransom notes on the affected systems. They demand payment of a ransom in cryptocurrencies in exchange for the decryption key needed to recover the files.

BAK file loss can result in the inability to restore crucial systems or data. This can lead to significant interruptions in daily operations, causing financial losses and damaging the victim’s reputation.

In addition to the operational consequences, encrypting BAK files can expose sensitive information that was originally protected by backups. Exposure of this data can result in privacy violations and legal complications.
