Onyx Ransomware

Onyx ransomware is the newest group to emerge on the cyberattack scene, the group has generated a great deal of trouble for its victims, on its website the group already has six companies listed as victims. The group’s malware has not only encrypted files, but has corrupted them as well.

The group’s malware is designed to encrypt files smaller than 2 MB, larger files are destroyed. Even after paying the ransom and receiving the decryption key, these files cannot be recovered.

This is one of the most damaging tactics in recent years, the group does not appear to care about their image or the possibility of victims not paying the ransom, the group is highly destructive.

Onyx has many similarities to the Conti ransomware, one of the most active groups in recent years, but also appears to be a variant of the Chaos ransomware.

Despite these differences Onyx ransomware acts like other ransomware, adding the .ampkcz extension to all affected files, and generating a document with ransom terms.

The victim is forwarded to a .TOR site where they can contact the criminals to pay the ransom, this payment is usually made with cryptocurrencies. Remember that this is not recommended in any way.

The recovery of files encrypted by the Onyx ransomware is extremely complex, due to the fact that the group corrupts the files, but recovery is possible. Digital Recovery specializes in the recovery of files encrypted by ransomware.

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.

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.
