Decrypt Akira ransomware files

We have developed exclusive solutions that enable the recovery of Akira encrypted files.

Ransomware attacks have become one of the leading and most damaging means of cyber attacks in recent years. There has been an unprecedented increase in the number of companies that have had their data completely encrypted after an attack.

Numerous Akira cyber attacks are tailored and directed towards specific victim companies, with the potential for immense destruction. These attacks often involve a deliberate delay in the encryption process, as the attackers attempt to first gain access to online backups and as many network devices as possible. This can result in the encryption process lasting for months, and once the ransomware is executed, it has the capability to encrypt the majority, if not all, of the data files.

In the face of something so disastrous, there is little that can be done, especially if backups have been affected or are not up to date. The number of companies that shut down after having their data encrypted has reached staggering numbers.

In many cases, even after payment of the Akira ransom, the decryption key is not sent by the criminals, and in these cases there is no higher authority to turn to.

Digital Recovery comes to the market with solutions capable of decrypting files affected by ransomware. We have solid numbers in our recovery projects.

Answers from our experts

How do I recover files affected by Akira ransomware?

The recovery of Akira encrypted ransomware files is made possible by our proprietary technology, which enables us to locate and reconstruct the affected files in many cases.

This process requires knowledge about the storage device that was affected, without which the files can be corrupted and recovery would not be possible. Our experts have extensive knowledge about each of the major storage devices, such as: RAID systems, Storages (NAS, DAS, SAN), Databases, Servers, Virtual Machines, and more.

How to choose a company to decrypt my data?

Few companies in the world are able to decrypt Akira ransomware files, so information about this possibility is scarce, to the point that many think that such a recovery is impossible. Also, there is a lot of incorrect information stating that decryption is not possible.

And among all these discussions there are serious companies that have developed such solutions, such as Digital Recovery.

Due to the confidential nature of the recovery process and customer information, formal testimonials regarding these processes are limited.

Given all this, it is important that you look for companies that are serious and that have several years of experience in the data recovery market and that make an expert available for the customer to communicate with from the first contact.

How much does the process to decrypt Akira ransomware cost?

The cost of the ransomware decryption process can only be determined after an initial diagnosis, as the extent of the damage caused by the Akira ransomware attack needs to be assessed. This evaluation will determine if the decryption process is possible or not, and the complexity of the process required. As a result, it is not possible to provide an estimate or quote for the cost of the decryption process without first conducting an analysis.

Once the initial diagnosis is complete, we provide a commercial proposal for the recovery process. The payment for the service is typically only requested after the customer has validated the recovered files in a remote session. This process ensures that the customer is satisfied with the results before finalizing the payment.

Is negotiating with hackers from Akira group a good option?

Criminals count on the victim contacting them in the first few hours after the attack, so they use threats expressed in the ransom terms, in this first contact the victim will be under strong stress and may give in more quickly to the criminals’ whims.

We recommend that the victim should not contact the Akira criminals, but contact professionals in this field, so that, accompanied by an expert, they can analyze the data and verify the possibilities of recovery.

What you need to know

Preventing a Akira ransomware attack requires a comprehensive cybersecurity framework, but that’s not all, let’s list some important points that you need to pay attention to.

  • Organization – Having documentation of the IT park helps a lot in the prevention process, in addition to the inventory of networks and computers. Develop rules so that new employees have clear company policy on the installation and use of programs on computers.
  • Strong Passwords – Passwords should be strong, containing more than 8 digits, including special ones. And do not use a single password for multiple credentials.
  • Security Solutions – Have a good antivirus installed, keep all programs up to date, especially the operating system. Besides the antivirus solution, you need a Firewall and endpoints. They will make sure that the system stays protected.
  • Beware of suspicious emails – One of the most used means for invasion used by hacker groups are spam email campaigns, so it is vital to create a security and awareness policy for employees not to download attached files sent by unknown emails.
  • Efficient backup policies – Backups are essential for any eventual incident, but even with this essential role many companies neglect it or create a backup schedule that is not effective. We have already assisted several clients that not only the data was encrypted, but also the backups. It is not recommended to keep online backups only. The best backup structure is 3x2x1, which is 3 backups, 2 online and 1 offline, in addition to creating a consistent routine of updating the backups.
  • Beware of unofficial programs – There are numerous paid programs that are made available for free on the Internet, such as Windows, Office and many others. They may appear to be free at first, but in the future can be used as a gateway for future hacker attacks. Even if official programs demand financial resources, they are a good investment and are also secure.

There exist various tactics utilized by Akira criminals, the primary ones being: dissemination of infected files, malicious hyperlinks, RDP-based assaults, phishing, spam email campaigns, among others.

Their ultimate objective is to infiltrate the victim’s system without their knowledge. Therefore, Akira ransomware disguises itself within the system to evade detection by security systems.

In situations where user involvement is required, perpetrators employ phishing techniques to induce the victim into unwittingly downloading ransomware onto their system.

Suspicious activities such as excessive processing, memory usage, and disk access warrant a thorough investigation to determine whether an attack is in progress.

Akira Ransomware typically utilizes the machine’s own resources to carry out data exfiltration and encryption, thereby imposing a heavy load on the system’s resources.

Moreover, detecting the attack through changes to file extensions can be challenging since the encryption process would have already been initiated, making it a more complex process.

The data will remain encrypted, it will be necessary for the affected machine to be formatted. By doing this all stored data will be lost.

But in cases where the attacking group uses the double extortion tactic of copying and extracting all files and encrypting the original data, the stolen files will be posted on the group’s website or Dark Web forums and all original data will remain encrypted on the affected device, requiring the device to be formatted.

Through unique technologies Digital Recovery can bring back encrypted data on any storage device, offering remote solutions anywhere in the world.
