Stormous Ransomware

Stormous ransomware emerged in the midst of tensions between Russia and Ukraine. As the invasion of Ukraine began, Stormous positioned itself in favor of Russia.

Along with the Conti ransomware, which have been at the forefront of cyber attacks against countries that are opposed to Russia. This conflict has shown the advancement of modern warfare that goes far beyond war power.

In the face of threats made by Conti against cyberinfrastructures of western companies, Stormous has been engaged in these attacks.

The group emerged timidly in January 2022, with an attack on a French company. After that attack, the group attacked the American company Serta Inc, and then the Spanish healthcare facility, Fatima Hospital.

All their companies attacked are from the West, a peculiar feature of this group is that the ransom note is written in Arabic, which may indicate their origin.

It is not known for sure if Stormous’ attacks are only political or if they are aimed at financial gain, but from what everything indicates financial gain is the group’s target.

The group works with the tactic of double extortion, which is encryption and data theft, the stolen files are leaked if the victim does not pay the ransom. The group has been leaking the files of the attacked companies.

Even with all this chaotic scenario, recovery of the files encrypted by the ransomware is possible, even without the decryption key.

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 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.
