Ech0raix Ransomware

The Ech0raix ransomware has been known since 2019. However, recently the group responsible for the Ech0raix ransomware attacks has updated its malware and has once again fired malicious email campaigns around the world.

The group’s attacks are targeted exclusively at QNAP NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices, which has forced the manufacturer QNAP to release problem-solving updates frequently.

The Ech0raix ransomware is written in the GO programming language and, like other ransomware, uses the AES algorithm to encrypt the data.

Right after encrypting the most important data in the environment, the .encrypt extension is added to the original file name.

In its latest wave of attacks, the group behind the Ech0raix ransomware used to ask from 0.024BTC ($1,200) to 0.06BTC ($3,000) in ransom value.

According to independent researchers, there has been a considerable increase in reports of attacks by Ech0raix. A new wave is happening.

QNAP has been alerted and is working on solving the problem. This possible update will of course be a protection against future attacks. However, those who have already been infected will not be able to rely on this improvement for the recovery of their data.

Fortunately, in cases like these, data recovery companies such as Digital Recovery can be relied upon.

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.
