Decrypt Netlok8 ransomware files

We have made it possible to recover Netlok8 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 Netlok8 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 Netlok8 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 Netlok8 ransomware?

The recovery of Netlok8 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?

Few companies in the world are able to decrypt Netlok8 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.

While there may be discussions around the possibility of decrypting ransomware files, there are indeed reputable companies that have developed solutions to do so, including Digital Recovery.

Information about these processes and customers is confidential, so formal testimonials are scarce.

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 Netlok8 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 Netlok8 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 Netlok8 group a good option?

Criminals often rely on victims contacting them in the first few hours after a ransomware attack, and will use threatening language in their ransom demands. During this initial contact, victims may be under significant stress and may be more likely to comply with the criminals’ demands.

We recommend that the victim should not contact the Netlok8 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 Netlok8 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 exist various tactics utilized by Netlok8 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, Netlok8 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 Netlok8 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 Netlok8 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.

If a device is affected by Netlok8 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.

Through unique technologies Digital Recovery can bring back encrypted data on any storage device, offering remote solutions anywhere in the world.
