Decrypt .faust ransomware files

With our unique solutions recovering .faust encrypted files has become possible.

Ransomware attacks have become one of the leading and most damaging means of cyber attacks in recent years. The number of companies experiencing complete encryption of their data following an attack has risen to an unprecedented level.

Numerous .faust 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 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 .faust 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 .faust ransomware?

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

After the initial diagnosis, a commercial proposal is made available and, once accepted, the recovery process is started. In most of the cases the payment is only made after the validation of the recovered files, done by the customer himself in a remote session.

Is negotiating with hackers from .faust 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 .faust 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 .faust 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 .faust ransomware attack.

There are several strategies employed by .faust 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 .faust 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.

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 .faust 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 .faust 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 .faust 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.
