We can recover data encrypted by Cheers ransomware across most storage devices
Decrypt Cheers ransomware files
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.
Numerous Cheers 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.
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 Cheers 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
How do I recover files affected by Cheers ransomware?
The recovery of Cheers 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 Cheers 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 Cheers 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 Cheers 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 Cheers 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 Cheers 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
How to prevent a Cheers ransomware attack?
Preventing a Cheers 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.
Keep software and operating systems up to date: Regularly update software and operating systems with the latest security patches to protect against known vulnerabilities.
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.
Educate employees: Train employees on how to recognize phishing emails and other social engineering tactics used by cybercriminals.
Back up data regularly: Make sure to regularly back up important data to a secure, offsite location.
Use antivirus and antimalware software: Use reputable antivirus and antimalware software and keep it up to date.
Limit user access: Restrict user access to only what is necessary to perform their job functions and regularly review and remove unnecessary access.
Monitor network traffic: Regularly monitor network traffic to detect unusual activity or traffic patterns.
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 Cheers ransomware attack.
What is the most common means of access used by hackers to break into the environments?
There are several strategies employed by Cheers 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 Cheers 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 Cheers 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 Cheers 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 Cheers 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.
What happens if I don't pay the Cheers ransom?
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.
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.
