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

Ransomware Black Basta

Black Basta ransomware is the newest ransomware group targeting large corporations, the group emerged in April, and has already left at least 12 known victims.

Black Basta acts with the tactic of double extortion. Before encrypting the files, the group copies them and sends them to a remote server. This tactic is extremely damaging to the victims, because not only are they pressured to pay the ransom to decrypt the files, but they are also threatened with the leak of the data.

The group maintains two sites to expose their victims’ files, the Black Basta Blog and the Basta News Tor. There is still little information about the group, it appears that it is a closed group that does not operate with RaaS (Ransomware a as Service) tactics.

After taking control of the victim’s system and encrypting the files, the group changes the wallpaper to display the following message: “Your network is encrypted by the Black Basta group. Instructions in the readme.txt file.” In all encrypted folders the readme.txt file is left. It is added to all files inscribed with the extension .basta.

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.

Yes, attacks usually happen mainly on holidays and weekends during the early morning hours. These days are chosen because there are not many active users on the system, which prevents the attack from being discovered before the encryption is completed.

First of all, do not pay the ransom. No matter what the hackers say, there is no guarantee that the decryption key will actually be released after the ransom is paid.
The first thing to do is to inform the authorities about the attack, governments have specialized cybercrime departments that will investigate the attack. After that, check if your backups were affected, if they were, only a company specialized in data recovery can recover your files, this is the next step. Contact Digital Recovery who will assist you in the complete recovery of your files.

After first contacting us and sending the affected media we will diagnose the device to check the extent of the damage caused by the ransomware, with this we can project the duration of the process, and provide the budget to the customer. After the budget is approved by the customer, we start the recovery process, for this we have exclusive software that can, with the help of our specialists, reconstruct the data.
If the customer opts for remote recovery, instead of sending us the media, he/she will send the encrypted files to a virtual environment, which is totally safe, so that we can access them.
After the end of the process we will do a double check so that the customer can verify the integrity of the recovered files.
Payment is only made after delivery of the files and validation of the same by the client.
