Ransomware Chaos

Chaos Ransomware has been active since June 2021, it is a .NET variant of the RYUK Ransomware. It is being offered for testing on underground forums.

Chaos has come a long way since its first appearance, at first it was much more of a destructive Trojan than a ransomware. But now in its current version it acts like ransomware, which aims to encrypt the victim’s data. 

The group uses the RaaS tactic, there are indications that the group was making the malware freely available on dark web forums, this may indicate that the group was seeking renown and to show its effectiveness with a free trial. 

This kind of tactic could lead to a spike in Chaos attacks, because any malicious person can access it and make attacks, on the other hand, the attacks become more structured. But this does not make it less lethal, because once it has access to the system it is able to encrypt it completely. 

Chaos follows the pattern of other groups by charging in bitcoins for the decryption key to be released so that the victim can access his files again. 

Although it may seem that paying the ransom is the only possible way, we maintain, it is not. Digital Recovery provides unique solutions for the recovery of files encrypted by ransomware, and can recover files even without the decryption key.

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.
