Recovery of files affected by BlackMatter Ransomware
We can recover data encrypted by BlackMatter ransomware on the majority of the storage devices
Decrypt BlackMatter ransomware files
With our unique solutions recovering BlackMatter encrypted files has become possible.
In recent years, ransomware attacks have emerged as a prominent and highly destructive form of cyber attack. There has been an unprecedented increase in the number of companies that have had their data completely encrypted after an attack.
Many of these BlackMatter attacks are specific and targeted to the victim company, such attacks have enormous destructive potential. Not only is the group in no hurry to start the process of encrypting the data, without first reaching online backups and as many devices on the network as possible, this process can last for months, and when the ransomware is executed it can encrypt the vast majority of the data or even 100% of the files.
When faced with such a catastrophic event, there is often little that can be done, particularly if the backup systems have also been compromised or are not current. The staggering number of companies that have been forced to shut down following the encryption of their data serves as a grim reminder of the devastating consequences of these attacks.
In many cases, even after payment of the BlackMatter ransom, the decryption key is not sent by the criminals, and in these cases there is no higher authority to turn to.

Soon after a new wave of LockBit 2.0 ransomware attacks, many companies saw their business come to a standstill because of data locked up by encryption. Here is a case of decryption for one of them.
We received a contact from a company that said it had suffered an attack and was unable to continue its activities. When they arrived at their offices just after the weekend, they realized that a large part of their data was inaccessible.
One of the largest River Logistics companies in Latin America contacted us to decrypt files after an attack by Quantum Ransomware. There has been a wave of attacks by the Quantum group targeting several different companies.

Answers from our experts
The recovery of BlackMatter 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.
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?
Due to the limited number of companies with the ability to decrypt BlackMatter 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.
Due to the confidential nature of the recovery process and customer information, formal testimonials regarding these processes are limited.
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 BlackMatter 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 BlackMatter 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 BlackMatter 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 BlackMatter 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 BlackMatter 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 are several strategies employed by BlackMatter criminals, the main ones are: downloads of infected files, malicious links, attacks via RDP, Phishing, spam email campaigns, and more.
All of them have the same intention, to access the victim’s system without the victim’s awareness. To do so, the BlackMatter ransomware camouflages itself in the system so as not to be detected by defense systems.
In the tactics that depend on the action of a user, phishing tactics are applied so that the victim, without realizing it, downloads the ransomware into the system.
Is there any behavior of my server, that I can analyze, to know if I am being attacked by BlackMatter Ransomware?
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 BlackMatter 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 BlackMatter 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 BlackMatter 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.
