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

Ransomware Haron

Haron ransomware is relatively new, along with Blackmatter ransomware and AvosLocker it has been vying for the spot left by REvil Sodinokibi and Darkside and especially Avaddon ransomware which seems to be Haron’s direct predecessor.

The Haron group follows a “good manners” norm, they restrict attacks to specific sectors such as:

  • Hospitals.
  • Critical infrastructure facilities (nuclear power plants, power plants, water treatment facilities).
  • Oil and gas industry (pipelines, oil refineries).
  • Defense industry
  • Non-profit companies
  • Government sector.

If any of these sectors are attacked, the group says it will give away the decryption key for free, this is the same mode of operation as the BlackMatter ransomware.

The group works with RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) tactics, which is the outsourcing of attacks. In numerous Darkweb forums the group appears selling its services in exchange for a commission on the ransom value.

The Haron ransomware attacks are focused on the Windows operating system. Most antivirus software cannot identify the presence of the ransomware after a break-in, because the ransomware is hardly noticeable.

Haron’s encryption is so powerful that even after removing the virus the data can remain encrypted. And should this happen, recovery of the encrypted data will be necessary.

Recovery of Data Encrypted by Haron Ransomware

Encrypted data recovery can only be done by a highly capable company that has the tools and technologies to do this job. And, few companies are capable of doing this service.

Among these few companies is Digital Recovery, which has been in the data recovery market for more than two decades. It was able to develop technologies that innovated the recovery of data encrypted by ransomware on any device, whether: RAID systems, Storage, Database, Servers, Virtual Machines and others. This ability to develop technologies has put us at the forefront of encrypted file recovery.

Because we know that we deal with data that can be sensitive for companies, we provide all of our clients with a confidentiality agreement (NDA) as a guarantee that nothing about the process will be disclosed.

All our processes are in accordance with the General Law on Data Protection (GDPR).

During the entire process, the client is accompanied by a specialist who can clarify any questions about the process.

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.

The vast majority of ransomware uses RSA [Rivest-Shamir-Adleman]-2048 and AES [Advanced Encryption Standard] encryption.

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.
