Magniber Ransomware

The Magniber ransomware, was identified in 2017 by malware researcher, Michael Gillespie. The research points out that the group is a variant of the Cerber ransomware, and today is already in its Magniber 2022 version.

Its main attack targets have been directed at South Korea, which has already fallen victim to invasions with losses as high as $1 million.

The malware hits computers in a different way than other ransomware that uses spam links, malicious websites, illicit programs and others. Magniber attacks directly through fake updates to Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Windows and Linux operating systems.

Upon entering a website, a pop-up appears saying that your browser or operating system is outdated, and gives you the option to click and download the update. After clicking and downloading, the data starts to be encrypted and becomes inaccessible.

Once the data is encrypted, Magniber adds an extension of random characters, making it difficult to search for a solution and encouraging ransom payment.

The ransomware also creates the ransom note in a .txt file that is left on the desktop. In it the group leaves the means for the victim to make the payment to receive the decryption key.

Usually, the communication channel with the group and payment is done via TOR browser, where their domain is as My Dreyptor. And finally, payment is requested in Bitcoin.

Payment is never recommended in any scenario, as there is no guarantee that the key will be delivered after payment.

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 go unnoticed, so it can disable all system defences without being noticed and start the process of encrypting files. Even if ransomware goes unnoticed by the system, it can be noticed by the user, as it uses system resources to perform the encryption, which can slow down the system. Ransomware also changes file extensions. So look out for these signs: slowing down the system and adding extensions to files. To find out more, talk to our experts.
Yes, this is possible. You can restart the computer in safe mode, which will limit the action of the ransomware since the system resources will be locked. You can also disconnect the computer from the Internet, which can interrupt the hackers’ connection to your system, it should be noted that there are ransomwares that work even without being connected to the Internet. You can also run diagnostics to identify threats with your antivirus software, the vast majority of antivirus software 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 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. To find out more, talk to our experts.
Yes, the attacks mainly take place on holidays and weekends, in the early hours of the morning. These days are chosen because there are not many active users on the system, making it impossible to discover the attack before the encryption is complete. To find out more, talk to our experts.
The vast majority of ransomware uses RSA [Rivest-Shamir-Adleman] -2048 and AES [Advanced Encryption Standard] encryption. To find out more, talk to our experts.
First of all, do not pay the ransom. No matter what the hackers say, there is no guarantee that the decryption key will actually be released after the ransom is paid. The first thing to do is to inform the authorities about the attack. Governments have specialised cybercrime departments that will investigate the attack. Next, check if your backups have been affected, if so, only a specialist data recovery company can recover your files, this is the next step. Contact Digital Recovery who will assist you in the full recovery of your files. To find out more, talk to our experts.
After contacting us and sending the affected media, we will diagnose the device to verify the extent of the damage caused by the ransomware, which will allow us to predict the duration of the process and provide the client with a budget. Once the budget is approved by the client, we begin the recovery process, for which we have proprietary software that can, with the help of our specialists, reconstruct the data. If the client opts for remote recovery, instead of sending us the media, they will send the encrypted files to a virtual environment, totally secure, so that we can access them. At the end of the process, we will perform a double check so that the customer can verify the integrity of the recovered files. Payment is only made once the files have been delivered and validated by the client. To find out more, talk to our experts.
