Decrypt BlackCat ransomware files

We have made it possible to recover BlackCat encrypted files through our distinctive solutions.

Ransomware attacks have become one of the leading and most damaging means of cyber attacks in recent years. An unprecedented number of companies have been subjected to complete data encryption following cyber attacks.

Many BlackCat cyber attacks are customized and aimed at particular organizations, and can cause severe damage. These attacks frequently feature a purposeful pause in the encryption procedure, as the perpetrators try to infiltrate online backup systems and as many network-connected devices as possible. As a result, the encryption process can persist for several months, and upon activation, the ransomware can encrypt almost all, if not all, of the data files. This highlights the severity and destructive potential of these targeted attacks.

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 BlackCat 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 BlackCat ransomware?

The recovery of BlackCat ransomware files is only possible because we have developed a proprietary technology that allows us to locate the encrypted files and reconstruct them, in many cases.

Successful recovery of encrypted ransomware files requires knowledge about the specific storage device that was affected. Our experts possess extensive knowledge and expertise in each of the major storage devices, including RAID systems, Storages (NAS, DAS, SAN), Databases, Servers, Virtual Machines, and more. Without this specialized knowledge, file recovery can be compromised and may not be possible.

How to choose a company to decrypt my data?

Due to the limited number of companies with the ability to decrypt BlackCat ransomware files, accurate information on this process is hard to come by. As a result, many people believe that such recovery is impossible, and there is a lot of misinformation that decryption cannot be done.

While there may be discussions around the possibility of decrypting ransomware files, there are indeed reputable companies that have developed solutions to do so, including Digital Recovery.

Information about these processes and customers is confidential, so formal testimonials are scarce.

In light of these challenges, it is crucial to seek out reputable companies with significant experience in the data recovery industry, and that provide direct access to a dedicated expert from the initial point of contact. This ensures that customers can trust the expertise and reliability of the company, and receive the support they need to navigate the recovery process.

How much does the process to decrypt BlackCat ransomware cost?

It is not possible to state the price of the process before the initial diagnosis, only after it is possible to measure the size of the damage caused by BlackCat ransomware and analyze whether decryption will be possible or not.

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 BlackCat 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 strongly advise victims of BlackCat ransomware attacks not to contact the criminals directly but instead seek professional assistance from experts in this field. By contacting professionals, victims can be accompanied by an expert who can analyze the data and evaluate the possibilities of recovery. This approach can help reduce stress and increase the chances of a successful recovery while minimizing the risk of further damage or loss of data.

What you need to know

Preventing a BlackCat 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.

  1. Keep software and operating systems up to date: Regularly update software and operating systems with the latest security patches to protect against known vulnerabilities.

  2. Use strong passwords and two-factor authentication: Use strong, unique passwords for all accounts and enable two-factor authentication to add an extra layer of security.

  3. Educate employees: Train employees on how to recognize phishing emails and other social engineering tactics used by cybercriminals.

  4. Back up data regularly: Make sure to regularly back up important data to a secure, offsite location.

  5. Use antivirus and antimalware software: Use reputable antivirus and antimalware software and keep it up to date.

  6. Limit user access: Restrict user access to only what is necessary to perform their job functions and regularly review and remove unnecessary access.

  7. Monitor network traffic: Regularly monitor network traffic to detect unusual activity or traffic patterns.

  8. Have an incident response plan: Develop and regularly test an incident response plan to respond quickly and effectively to a ransomware attack.

By following these best practices, organizations can help reduce their risk of falling victim to a BlackCat ransomware attack.

There exist various tactics utilized by BlackCat 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, BlackCat 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.

High consumption of processing, memory and disk access are suspicious behaviors that need to be investigated thoroughly in order to assess whether an attack is underway.  

The BlackCat ransomware uses the machine’s own resources to perform exfiltration. In order to encrypt the machine this demands the use of its own resources.

It is also possible to detect the BlackCat attack by the changes made to the file extensions, this type of detection is a bit more complex because the encryption process will have already been started.

If a device is affected by BlackCat ransomware that uses encryption, the encrypted data will remain inaccessible until the ransom is paid or the device is formatted.

However, if the attacking group employs the double extortion tactic of copying and exfiltrating all files from the device prior to encryption, they may post the stolen files on the group’s website or on Dark Web forums. In this case, even if the victim pays the ransom or formats the affected device, the original data will remain encrypted while the stolen files will be exposed, causing significant data breaches and privacy concerns.

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