Clop Ransomware

The Clop ransomware emerged in mid-February 2019. Six members of the group were arrested in June 2021 in Ukraine following an investigation by International police (from Ukraine, the United States and South Korea), but the group is still active.

The group was responsible for many attacks on large companies, and caused an estimated $500 million in damage. The attacks were made against Stanford University and the University of California, and also renowned and well-known companies, such as the American pharmaceutical company ExecuPharm and also the South Korean retailer E-Land.

In the latter case of E-Land, which occurred in November 2020, the Asian conglomerate had to close more than 20 shops while dealing with the attack.The group also attacked oil company Shell and telecommunications company Singtel.

The Clop Ransomware breaks into the system and encrypts all the data, and adds an extension (.clop), and according to the group, if you delete the readme files or move the files around, the data can be damaged. And if the victim does not get in touch within 2 weeks all the data and keys will be deleted automatically.

The ransomware groups charge ransom for the stolen data, an amount that varies depending on the size of the company and the amount of data encrypted.

Which group was the perpetrator of the attack also influences the amount charged. For, depending on the name of the group, the likelihood that the company will pay the ransom increases.

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.

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.
