Ransomware BitLocker

The BitLocker ransomware has exploited known vulnerabilities in Microsoft Exchange, these vulnerabilities became known as ProxyShell, this name was given to the combination of three vulnerabilities: CVE-2021-34473, CVE-2021-34523 and CVE-2021-31207.

Unlike other groups, BitLocker uses a tool from Windows itself to encrypt the files, a tool that gives the group its name.

This encryption tactic requires a bit more from the group, because it needs to take control of the system through remote access, so that it can perform the encryption. Even if the BitLocker program is disabled, the malware executes commands to enable it.

The fact that the group has to control the system remotely is of concern, because it does not just use this “privilege” to activate encryption, through this the malware moves laterally in the system looking for backup systems and domain controllers.

This process is time consuming, it can last a few hours. And when the encryption process is finished all systems are locked down and a ransom note is left on the desktop containing information for the victim to contact the group.

The ransom is charged in cryptocurrencies and can vary according to the size of the company and the amount of files that have been encrypted. The amount is usually around the thousands of dollars.

In cases where even the backup is encrypted it may seem that the only way out is to pay the ransom, but that is not. Digital Recovery specializes in ransomware encrypted data recovery, we can recover files that have been encrypted by Bitlocker ransomware on any storage device.

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.

Yes, it is possible. You can restart the computer in safe mode which will limit the ransomware’s action as system resources will be locked. You can also disconnect the computer from the Internet which can interrupt the hackers’ connection to your system, it is worth remembering that there is ransomware that works even without being connected to the Internet. 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.
