Ransomware Karma

Karma ransomware is a spin-off of numerous malware that started as JSWorm ransomware, became Nemty, then Nefilim, Fusion, Milihpen, Gangban, and finally Karma.

Karma remains committed to attacking Windows operating systems focused on vulnerable networks. The group has made efforts to attack Chinese companies in the engineering and manufacturing sector.

The group uses the tactic of double extortion, which is the theft of files followed by encryption of the data. This tactic is highly damaging as the servers are locked by the encryption, preventing the company from functioning, and the criminals threaten to release the encrypted files on the dark web.

The group maintains a leak site under the name Karma Leaks for leaking customer data, trade secrets, and other types of files. Companies are responsible for their customers’ data and if leaked, the company can be fined.

A successful ransomware attack will always be a major disaster for any company, if there is no up-to-date backup or if the backup has been affected by the ransomware, all options to restore the company’s operation without paying the ransom are gone.

In fact, there is still one option left for such companies, the recovery of encrypted files done by Digital Recovery.

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.
