The BabyDuck ransomware may seem harmless by name, but believe me, it is not. The group is responsible for numerous attacks in recent months, it is as destructive as any other ransomware group.
BabyDuck uses the AES+RSA algorithm to encrypt the victim’s files, this algorithm is nearly impossible to break, all files affected by it receive the .babyduck extension and they cannot be opened.
After the end of the encryption process a decryption key is generated, which is stored on the remote server controlled by the criminals. After that the criminals blackmail the victim to pay the ransom and then access the files again.
So that the victim can contact the group, a file is left fixed on the desktop, containing the information and directions for the victim to negotiate the ransom.
Any contact with the criminals is discouraged by government authorities, as the groups expect it, and use psychological tactics to get the victim to pay the ransom, money that will fund the group for further attacks. Besides the group gives no guarantee that the decryption key will be released.
Therefore, it is necessary to look for solutions that do not depend on negotiating with hackers, Digital Recovery offers specific solutions to recover data encrypted by ransomware.
