Decrypt Ghost ransomware files

We have made it possible to recover Ghost 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.

Many Ghost cyber attacks are customized and aimed at particular organizations, and can cause severe damage. These attacks frequently feature a purposeful pause in the encryption procedure, as the perpetrators try to infiltrate online backup systems and as many network-connected devices as possible. As a result, the encryption process can persist for several months, and upon activation, the ransomware can encrypt almost all, if not all, of the data files. This highlights the severity and destructive potential of these targeted attacks.

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 Ghost 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 Ghost ransomware. We have solid numbers in our recovery projects.

Why Digital Recovery?

With over 23 years of experience, we have accumulated satisfied customers around the world. We can run most of our solutions remotely, and we have multilingual support.

As Ghost ransomware attacks continue to rise globally, we have focused our expertise on ransomware decryption. Our team has developed a distinctive solution that can be applied to a wide range of storage devices, including Virtual Machines, RAID Systems, Storages (NAS, DAS, SAN), Databases, Servers, and much more.

Our team of specialists is highly qualified and equipped with the latest technologies in the data recovery market, including our proprietary TRACER technology. With TRACER, we have achieved remarkable results in decrypting ransomware files, setting us apart from others in the industry.

We offer an advanced diagnosis that will allow us to understand the dimension of the Ghost attack, this first diagnosis can be done in the first 24 working hours from the time we receive the samples. After this process, we provide a commercial agreement and, once accepted, we kick off the process of decrypting the files.

All our solutions are supported by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), through which we offer total security to our customers. We also provide a confidentiality agreement (NDA) written by our legal department. But if you feel more comfortable in providing an NDA written by your own company, we are open to analyze and accept it, if necessary.

Answers from our experts

How do I recover files affected by Ghost ransomware?

The recovery of Ghost 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 Ghost 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.

Due to the confidential nature of the recovery process and customer information, formal testimonials regarding these processes are limited.

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 Ghost 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 Ghost ransomware and analyze whether decryption will be possible or not.

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 Ghost 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 Ghost 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 Ghost 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 Ghost ransomware attack.

There are several strategies employed by Ghost 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 Ghost 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 Ghost 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 Ghost 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.
