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

Ransomware Boss

Boss is a newly discovered ransomware extension, but the group tends to grow rapidly due to its RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) strategy.

The RaaS tactic has become a widely used method by hackers because it allows them to market the ransomware to anyone. Resulting in the greatest profit and spread of criminal operations.

Boss brings a peculiar feature in its encryption extensions. It is common for victims to receive them with random characters or the name of the ransomware. However, in addition to “.Boss”, the victim’s IP and the ransom e-mail are also left in the extension of the encrypted files.

This method has been used before by another group known as Makop. And by analyzing the source code of both, it can be stated that Boss and Makop belong to the same ransomware family.

The same email appears in the ransom note left by the group on the desktop, along with an FAQ taking the guesswork out of what happened. To prove that they have access to the decryption key, a folder with simple files of up to 1 MB can be decrypted.

It is worth mentioning that for complete data recovery, the group only accepts payment in Bitcoin, even though this action is not recommended, since there is no real guarantee that the files will be decrypted.

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.
