Decrypt HardBit ransomware files

We have made it possible to recover HardBit 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.

Many HardBit 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.

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 HardBit 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.

Why Digital Recovery?

With over 23 years of experience, our business has garnered a substantial number of contented customers across the globe. We are capable of remotely administering the majority of our solutions, and our team possesses the ability to communicate proficiently in multiple languages, enhancing our capacity to serve a diverse clientele.

With the increase of HardBit ransomware attacks around the world, we specialize in ransomware decryption. We have developed a unique solution that can be applied to the vast majority of storage devices, Virtual Machines, RAID Systems, Storages (NAS, DAS, SAN), Databases, Servers, and much more.

Our specialists are highly qualified and have the latest technologies in the data recovery market, the main one is called TRACER, a proprietary technology with which we have obtained expressive results in the decryption of ransomware files.

We offer an advanced diagnosis that will allow us to understand the dimension of the HardBit 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 HardBit ransomware?

The recovery of HardBit 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 HardBit 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 HardBit 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 HardBit 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 HardBit 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 HardBit 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 HardBit 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 HardBit ransomware attack.

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