Decrypt DATAF LOCKER ransomware files

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

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 DATAF LOCKER 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 such a disastrous event, the options available for organizations are often limited, especially if their backup systems have been impacted or are not updated. The alarming number of companies that have been forced to shut down operations after their data has been encrypted is a stark reminder of the devastating impact of these attacks.

Often, even after paying the DATAF LOCKER ransom, the criminals do not provide the decryption key, leaving the victims with no recourse or higher authority to turn to.

Digital Recovery has introduced solutions to the market that can successfully decrypt files affected by ransomware. Our recovery projects have yielded impressive results, with a proven track record of success.

Answers from our experts

How do I recover files affected by DATAF LOCKER ransomware?

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

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

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

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 DATAF LOCKER 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 DATAF LOCKER 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 DATAF LOCKER 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 DATAF LOCKER 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 DATAF LOCKER 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 DATAF LOCKER 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, DATAF LOCKER 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 DATAF LOCKER 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 DATAF LOCKER 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 DATAF LOCKER ransomware that uses encryption, the encrypted data will remain inaccessible until the ransom is paid or the device is formatted.

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.
