Stepik Ransomware

Stepik ransomware is highly dangerous, its attacks have produced damage all over the world. Stepik uses strong AES and RSA encryption.

The files encrypted by it can only be accessed with the matrix decryption key, which is kept by the group on a remote server, for each attack there is a specific key.

The main means of attacks used by the group are spam email campaigns, malicious advertisements, pirated or cracked software, fraudulent software updates and others. These are just the main means of attack, the group may use others.

Stepik ransomware targets devices with large amounts of stored data, such as Servers, Databases, Storages, RAID Systems, Virtual Machines and others.

Files encrypted by the ransomware are given the extension .stepik, these files are inaccessible. After the encryption is completed a file is created with the ransom terms, this file is named “RESTORE_FILES_INFO.txt”.

This file contains e-mails for the victim to contact the criminals, the commonly used e-mails are ‘steriok12132@tutanota.com and kukaJamba@tutanota.com’.

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.
