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

Midas Ransomware

The Midas ransomware is one of the variations of the Thanos ransomware that has emerged recently, Thanos was a large group that emerged in 2020, after numerous attacks the group disappeared, after a few months the malware’s source code was leaked, from this leak emerged the Prometheus, Spook, Haron, and the newest ransomware of the group, Midas.

There is still little information about how these ransomware are related, other than that they are variations of Thanos. What can be said is that they are all extremely powerful, and have accumulated numerous successful attacks.

Speaking specifically about Midas, the group works with the RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) tactic, their malware has been sold on the web forums, as well as maintaining a website for leaking the stolen files of the victims, the group works with the tactic of double extortion.

After Midas invades the victim’s system, the malware shuts down all programs and functions that could detect it or interrupt the encryption process.

The encrypted files are given an extension that is the name of the company itself, these files can only be opened with the help of the decryption key. When the encryption process is finished, a decryption key is generated, which in turn is also encrypted.

A text file is left with the ransom terms and threats if payment is not made, even though the group demands payment of the ransom they have no guarantee that the decryption key will actually be delivered to the victim or if it actually works.

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.

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.
