If your files have been encrypted, we accept the challenge of analyzing your case.

BlogXX Ransomware

The BlogXX ransomware group recently emerged with the theft of patient data from Mediabank, an Australian health insurance company, on October 12.

According to authorities, the hacker group behind this attack is linked to the Russian hacker gang known as REvil. BlogXX is believed to be a variant of the latter, which was suspended from operations with the intervention of law enforcement in 2021.

Although a revised version of the Revil ransomware and despite some arrests, BlogXX uses the Raas (Ransomware-as-a-Service) system. This allows any aspiring cybercriminal who possesses this ransomware to be able to carry out an attack.

In addition to encrypting system data, the BlogXX ransomware has tools that steal functional data to a secure server belonging to the attackers’ group. We call this double extortion.

In this way victims are threatened on two fronts: encrypted and unusable data as well as the danger of confidential files leaking out onto the Internet.

The private Australian Mediabank Group was the recent victim of this criminal group. They are demanding no less than USD $10 million in exchange for their silence.

Faced with Mediabank’s position of not paying the ransom, in addition to releasing data such as phone numbers or passport numbers of current or former customers of the company, “BlogXX” has gone further.

Several patients had their personal data disclosed on the Dark Web through a file called “Abortions”. It contains cases of miscarriages, unviable pregnancies, and others.

The Mediabank Group has once again apologized to its customers and firmly maintained that it does not collaborate with cybercriminals in this case of ransomware.

Obviously, dealing with criminals and responding positively to ransom demands is dangerous and irresponsible as it feeds the ransomware attack system.

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.
