Digital Recovery has been in the data recovery market for over two decades, and during all those years, recovering ransomware has challenged us the most.
Despite the great difficulty in recovering encrypted data, our technical department has advanced without looking back and we have achieved great and expressive results for our customers. Our customers are grateful to have saved thousands of dollars.
According to a report developed by a company specialized in financial transactions (Chainalysis, a global consulting, analysis, and market intelligence company focused on blockchains and with emphasis on bitcoins), in the year 2020 alone, there was an increase of more than 300% in ransom demands involving cyber attacks with kidnapped data. This shows that attacks continue to grow at an alarming rate.
With hundreds of ransomware operating in the market and every day new and more advanced versions appear, we can classify Ransomware into the following types:
Encrypts the files and prevents them from being opened. Although the files are encrypted, it is possible for the user to boot up the operating system and see the encrypted files.
If your project had a negative diagnosis or the execution time does not meet your expectations, we accept the challenge of analysing your case.
We specialize in data recovery encrypted by Stepik Ransomware and any other extensions. We have a specialized division that can work in a dedicated 24x7x365 mode to handle complex cyber attack cases.
Recovering Stepik ransomware is possible because we have developed hardware and software technologies that are capable of it. The ability to develop unique technologies puts us at a level that few data recovery companies in the world have achieved so far.
Our cutting edge technology is called Tracer, it was developed to recover ransomware of any type in RAID systems , Virtual Machines, Databases, among others. Tracer has had good results. It is capable, through a deep analysis, of rebuilding encrypted data, increasing the possibilities of data recovery on any device.
Our services are mainly focused on governments, financial institutions and small, medium and large companies, but we don’t just restrict ourselves to these areas, we also serve other data recovery companies.
If there is no possibility of sending the affected device to our laboratory, we can do the recovery remotely, anywhere in the world.
We know that a ransomware attack is harmful to the company’s image, so we provide our customers with a confidentiality agreement (NDA) so that there is security on the part of the customer that no information will be disclosed.
We know the critical scenario that is for a company to have its services paralyzed due to cyber attack, generating more damage day after day. That’s why we created recovery in emergency mode, where processes are accelerated and carried out 24 hours and 7 days a week. All so that the recovery is done as quickly as possible.
There is still hope for your lost data, our entire team is at your company's disposal.
With each passing day ransomware attacks are perfected. After a successful attack attempt, ransomware quickly maps the user’s most important files to begin encryption. Microsoft Office files, databases, PDFs, and designs are among their top targets.
Very often yes. Typically, the attack happens through loopholes given by malicious applications that were downloaded from the Web. Another very common way is through incoming e-mails with attachments or links to sites strategically designed to harm users. Your computer can become vulnerable by the simple fact of opening the attachment or clicking on the malicious link.
Hackers often leave threatening messages on affected machines and servers. However, if the data is not important or if you have a backup, if you format your computer and take care not to get hacked again, nothing will happen. There is a new type of computer attack where criminals steal your information and if you don’t pay the ransom, they threaten to spread your information across the Internet and the Deep Web.
I don’t think it is possible to explain this subject with a simple answer. But let’s just cover a few topics on the subject below. The best option is to hire a consulting company or a professional that specializes in the area of cyber security.
Just as in a grand theft there is a high level of planning, so too in a cyber attack.
For a thief to enter a house, someone needs to leave a breach open or he needs to find a way around the alarm systems. Likewise, a cyber criminal will try to get a partner to enter your computer to open the door for him to enter. These partners may be programs of dubious provenance downloaded from the Web or sent via email. If he can’t infiltrate these through these “accomplices”, the job will be much more difficult.
Once the program is installed on the user’s machine, the user is responsible for opening the door and informing the hacker that he has a machine available for hacking. Once this is done, the data encryption process begins.
After attacking the victim, the ransomware can easily spread to infect machines on the network, mainly aimed at servers. If servers are affected, the entire company will be affected, suffering great damage.
Of course, holidays and vacations are the main periods for cyber attacks. On these days the surveillance is less effective and as fewer people are working in the company, it is more difficult to notice suspicious movements.
In the year 2020 more than 500 million dollars in ransom payments were made.
In 29% of cases, the invasion happens by downloading an infected program or file or clicking on a hacked link. Next, with 21% of cases, is the attack via RDP [Remote Desktop Protocol], which is a means of remote access to Windows machines.
Currently it is Ragnar Locker that uses the Windows virtual machine system to perform infections and encrypt files and databases in the environment.
Yes. Abnormal slowness in disk processing and high memory consumption are suspicious behaviors that need to be carefully evaluated to see if an attack is in progress.
Not at all, unfortunately. In 2020, 65% of ransomware attacks affected data in the cloud. So having the data in the cloud doesn’t mean it’s actually protected.
Yes, in 15% of ransomware attack cases in 2020, administrators were able to anticipate the spread of malware and stop the infection from progressing.
There are a few options on the market and usually the key words “digital risk protection” appear in the product name. Due to the high number of cyber attacks, in some countries such as France, insurers are removing ransomware from insurance coverage.
