0mega Ransomware

0mega is a new ransomware extension released in May 2022. The group uses double extortion strategies, just like LockBit and other hacker families.

The double extortion adopted by the ransomware variants, consists of not only charging a fee to recover the encrypted files, but the groups threaten to expose the victim’s data if the negotiation does not take place.

The ransomware adds a “.0mega” extension to all infected files, blocking access and stealing the data. A ransom note called “DECRYPT-FILES.txt” is also inserted on the user’s desktop .

The 0mega ransom notes are customized for each victim. Containing company name, samples of stolen data, and the link to their TOR domain. Only those who have suffered a ransomware attack have the login key to the site, as the ransom note has a Base64-encoded blob (Binary Large Object). The group also contains a site dedicated to leaking corporate data that is being encrypted.

Currently the site claims to have access to over 150 gb stolen from a single target. And last month, one of the exposed companies was removed from the ransomware list, making the idea that the ransom was held by the victim.

So far there is no information of amounts demanded by the 0mega and also the encryption algorithm has not been revealed.

Ransomware Recovery FAQ

Every day, ransomware attacks get better and better. After a successful attack attempt, ransomware quickly maps the user’s most important files to begin encryption. Microsoft Office files, databases, PDFs and design are among its main targets.

Ransomware is designed to be unnoticeable, so it can disable all system defenses without being noticed and start the process of encrypting the files. Even though ransomware can go unnoticed by the system, it can still be noticed by the user, because ransomware uses the system’s own resources to do the encryption, this can slow down the system. Ransomware also changes file extensions. So be on the lookout for these signs: System slowdown and extensions being added to files.

You can also start the diagnostics to identify threats with your antivirus, the vast majority of antiviruses have this function.
But there are cases where the encryption was interrupted by the user, some files had already been affected and this caused an error in the encryption and even the hackers could not restore the files, even with the decryption key. In these cases only a data recovery company, such as Digital Recovery, can recover the files.
