We can recover data encrypted by Phobos ransomware across most storage devices
Decrypt Phobos ransomware files
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.
Numerous Phobos 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.
Often, even after paying the Phobos 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.

Answers from our experts
How do I recover files affected by Phobos ransomware?
The recovery of Phobos 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 Phobos 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.
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 Phobos 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 Phobos 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 Phobos 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 strongly advise victims of Phobos 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
How to prevent a Phobos ransomware attack?
Preventing a Phobos 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 Phobos ransomware attack.
What is the most common means of access used by hackers to break into the environments?
There exist various tactics utilized by Phobos 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, Phobos 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 Phobos Ransomware?
Suspicious activities such as excessive processing, memory usage, and disk access warrant a thorough investigation to determine whether an attack is in progress.
Phobos 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 Phobos ransom?
If a device is affected by Phobos 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.
