We can recover data encrypted by IceFire ransomware on the majority of the storage devices
Decrypt IceFire ransomware files
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 IceFire 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.
In many cases, even after payment of the IceFire ransom, the decryption key is not sent by the criminals, and in these cases there is no 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.

Answers from our experts
How do I recover files affected by IceFire ransomware?
The recovery of IceFire encrypted ransomware files is made possible by our proprietary technology, which enables us to locate and reconstruct the affected files 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?
Few companies in the world are able to decrypt IceFire 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.
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 IceFire 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 IceFire 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 IceFire 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 strongly advise victims of IceFire ransomware attacks not to contact the criminals directly but instead seek professional assistance from experts in this field. By contacting professionals, victims can be accompanied by an expert who can analyze the data and evaluate the possibilities of recovery. This approach can help reduce stress and increase the chances of a successful recovery while minimizing the risk of further damage or loss of data.

How to prevent a IceFire ransomware attack?
Preventing a IceFire 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.
- Organization – Having documentation of the IT park helps a lot in the prevention process, in addition to the inventory of networks and computers. Develop rules so that new employees have clear company policy on the installation and use of programs on computers.
- Strong Passwords – Passwords should be strong, containing more than 8 digits, including special ones. And do not use a single password for multiple credentials.
- Security Solutions – Have a good antivirus installed, keep all programs up to date, especially the operating system. Besides the antivirus solution, you need a Firewall and endpoints. They will make sure that the system stays protected.
- Beware of suspicious emails – One of the most used means for invasion used by hacker groups are spam email campaigns, so it is vital to create a security and awareness policy for employees not to download attached files sent by unknown emails.
- Efficient backup policies – Backups are essential for any eventual incident, but even with this essential role many companies neglect it or create a backup schedule that is not effective. We have already assisted several clients that not only the data was encrypted, but also the backups. It is not recommended to keep online backups only. The best backup structure is 3x2x1, which is 3 backups, 2 online and 1 offline, in addition to creating a consistent routine of updating the backups.
- Beware of unofficial programs – There are numerous paid programs that are made available for free on the Internet, such as Windows, Office and many others. They may appear to be free at first, but in the future can be used as a gateway for future hacker attacks. Even if official programs demand financial resources, they are a good investment and are also secure.
What is the most common means of access used by hackers to break into the environments?
There exist various tactics utilized by IceFire 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, IceFire 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 IceFire Ransomware?
Suspicious activities such as excessive processing, memory usage, and disk access warrant a thorough investigation to determine whether an attack is in progress.
IceFire Ransomware typically utilizes the machine’s own resources to carry out data exfiltration and encryption, thereby imposing a heavy load on the system’s resources.
Moreover, detecting the attack through changes to file extensions can be challenging since the encryption process would have already been initiated, making it a more complex process.
What happens if I don't pay the IceFire ransom?
If a device is affected by IceFire ransomware that uses encryption, the encrypted data will remain inaccessible until the ransom is paid or the device is formatted.
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.
