Decrypt DemonWare ransomware files

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

In recent years, ransomware attacks have emerged as a prominent and highly destructive form of cyber attack. An unprecedented number of companies have been subjected to complete data encryption following cyber attacks.

Numerous DemonWare 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.

Often, even after paying the DemonWare 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 DemonWare ransomware?

The recovery of DemonWare 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 DemonWare 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 DemonWare 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 DemonWare 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 DemonWare group a good option?

Criminals often rely on victims contacting them in the first few hours after a ransomware attack, and will use threatening language in their ransom demands. During this initial contact, victims may be under significant stress and may be more likely to comply with the criminals’ demands.

We recommend that the victim should not contact the DemonWare 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 DemonWare 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 DemonWare ransomware attack.

There exist various tactics utilized by DemonWare 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, DemonWare 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 DemonWare 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 DemonWare 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.

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.
