Decrypt Lockfiles ransomware files

With our unique solutions recovering Lockfiles 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.

Many of these Lockfiles 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.

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.

Often, even after paying the Lockfiles ransom, the criminals do not provide the decryption key, leaving the victims with no recourse or 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.

With over 23 years of experience, we have garnered a global clientele of satisfied customers who have benefited from our solutions. Our ability to remotely execute the majority of our solutions, coupled with our multilingual support, has enabled us to provide effective assistance to customers worldwide.

With the increase of Lockfiles 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 provide an advanced diagnosis service that enables us to determine the extent of the Lockfiles attack. This initial assessment can be completed within the first 24 working hours after receiving the samples. Upon completion of the assessment, we provide a commercial agreement for our services. Once the agreement is accepted, we initiate 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.

Answers from our experts

How do I recover files affected by Lockfiles ransomware?

The recovery of Lockfiles 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 Lockfiles 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 Lockfiles 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 Lockfiles 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 Lockfiles 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 Lockfiles 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 Lockfiles 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 Lockfiles ransomware attack.

There are several strategies employed by Lockfiles 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 Lockfiles 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 Lockfiles 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 Lockfiles 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.

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.
