Decrypt Masscan ransomware files

We have developed exclusive solutions that enable the recovery of Masscan encrypted 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 Masscan 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.

In many cases, even after payment of the Masscan ransom, the decryption key is not sent by the criminals, and in these cases there is no higher authority to turn to.

Digital Recovery has introduced solutions to the market that can successfully decrypt files affected by ransomware. Our recovery projects have yielded impressive results, with a proven track record of success.

Answers from our experts

How do I recover files affected by Masscan ransomware?

The recovery of Masscan encrypted ransomware files is made possible by our proprietary technology, which enables us to locate and reconstruct the affected files 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?

Due to the limited number of companies with the ability to decrypt Masscan 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.

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 Masscan 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 Masscan 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 Masscan 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 Masscan 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.

What you need to know

Preventing a Masscan 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.

There are several strategies employed by Masscan 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 Masscan 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 Masscan 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 Masscan 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.
