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

Ransomware LV

LV ransomware has its code structure based on the structure of the REvil Sodinokibi ransomware, which was the tormentor of numerous companies after a wave of attacks in the United States.

After these attacks, the REvil group ceased its activities because of the attention its attacks received from the U.S. government. It is unclear whether the group passed its code structure to GOLD NORTHFIELD, the group controlling the LV ransomware, or whether the group managed to break the malware’s code and adapted it for their group.

The emergence of a group like GOLD NORTHFIELD is a real concern because it shows to be a much larger organization than other ransomware groups.

Like other ransomware groups, LV ransomware uses RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) tactics, which is to attract affiliates to do the attacks, thus making the attacks easier and wider to spread.

In addition to RaaS the LV ransomware relies on two active sites to leak the hijacked data, this is a tactic that has become common.

The biggest weapon cybercriminals have is fear and ignorance of alternative ways to recover data, using threats to make the victim see no other way but to pay the ransom. Even though the victim does not have absolute certainty that the files will be returned intact, nor that the data will not be leaked in the future.

In the ransom note that the group leaves on the victim’s system, we can notice a line with several threats and a proud tone that without them their data will not be recovered. Remember: they use misinformation as a weapon to generate fear in the victims.

Even without the decryption key, recovery is possible and Digital Recovery specializes in this.

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.
