We can retrieve data encrypted by Hotarus ransomware on the majority of the storage devices
Decrypt Hotarus ransomware files
Ransomware attacks have become one of the leading and most damaging means of cyber attacks in recent years. An unprecedented number of companies have been subjected to complete data encryption following cyber attacks.
Many of these Hotarus attacks are specific and targeted to the victim company, such attacks have enormous destructive potential. Not only is the group in no hurry to start the process of encrypting the data, without first reaching online backups and as many devices on the network as possible, this process can last for months, and when the ransomware is executed it can encrypt the vast majority of the data or even 100% of the 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 Hotarus ransom, the criminals do not provide the decryption key, leaving the victims with no recourse or higher authority to turn to.

Soon after a new wave of LockBit 2.0 ransomware attacks, many companies saw their business come to a standstill because of data locked up by encryption. Here is a case of decryption for one of them.
We received a contact from a company that said it had suffered an attack and was unable to continue its activities. When they arrived at their offices just after the weekend, they realized that a large part of their data was inaccessible.
One of the largest River Logistics companies in Latin America contacted us to decrypt files after an attack by Quantum Ransomware. There has been a wave of attacks by the Quantum group targeting several different companies.
What our customers say about us
"We had a serious issue following a NAS server power outage in Raid 5. I immediately contacted DIGITAL RECOVERY. After a few days of hard work the issue was resolved."
"One of our RAID servers had stopped. After several attempts without fixing the problem we found DIGITAL RECOVERY and 5 hours later, at 4:00 am, the data was recovered."
"We referred DIGITAL RECOVERY in a special case (data loss) in a storage RAID 5. Digital Recovery recovered 32 million files and the customer was extremely satisfied."
"Without any doubts the best data recovery company. Digital Recovery contact details will always be saved on my cell phone, as I will inevitably need it again."
"The quality of the service is excellent. The attention given to the service is gratifying and the feedbacks that are given leave us calm, knowing that we can trust in the work and dedication."

They helped me recover some data that I had thought was lost. I had a great experience with the team for their calmness, agility, and transparency.
Answers from our experts
How do I recover files affected by Hotarus ransomware?
The recovery of Hotarus 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.
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?
Few companies in the world are able to decrypt Hotarus ransomware files, so information about this possibility is scarce, to the point that many think that such a recovery is impossible. Also, there is a lot of incorrect information stating that decryption is not possible.
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.
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 Hotarus 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 Hotarus 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 Hotarus 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 Hotarus 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
How to prevent a Hotarus ransomware attack?
Preventing a Hotarus 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.
Keep software and operating systems up to date: Regularly update software and operating systems with the latest security patches to protect against known vulnerabilities.
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.
Educate employees: Train employees on how to recognize phishing emails and other social engineering tactics used by cybercriminals.
Back up data regularly: Make sure to regularly back up important data to a secure, offsite location.
Use antivirus and antimalware software: Use reputable antivirus and antimalware software and keep it up to date.
Limit user access: Restrict user access to only what is necessary to perform their job functions and regularly review and remove unnecessary access.
Monitor network traffic: Regularly monitor network traffic to detect unusual activity or traffic patterns.
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 Hotarus ransomware attack.
What is the most common means of access used by hackers to break into the environments?
There exist various tactics utilized by Hotarus 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, Hotarus 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.
Is there any behavior of my server, that I can analyze, to know if I am being attacked by Hotarus Ransomware?
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 Hotarus 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 Hotarus 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.
What happens if I don't pay the Hotarus ransom?
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.
