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

Nefilim Ransomware

Nephilim ransomware first appeared in March 2020, and since then there have been numerous records of attacks by this group. The group’s main targets are companies with a turnover of more than $1 billion.

This type of strategy is called “Big Game Hunting“, some ransomware is developed specifically to target these companies, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that smaller companies will also be attacked by them.

Nefilim ransomware is famous for using exposed RDP ports, this is the operating system’s own port for remote access. The group takes advantage of this port to access the system.

After entering the system, the ransomware starts moving laterally in search of better credentials to access servers with more valuable files. Upon finding these files, they are copied and extracted to the criminals’ server, and after extraction, the original data is encrypted.

This data is used for double extortion, this tactic involves copying the files and extracting them and encrypting the stored originals. The encryption will paralyze the operation of the company, which is the first tactic implemented, if this does not force the company to pay the ransom, the stolen data is released at the group’s getaway location.

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.
