Erebus ransomware uses RSA-2048 encryption to lock files, it accesses the computer via malicious online advertisements on third-party websites. Usually, these ads redirect users to a Rig exploit server, thereby infecting the computer.
When Erebus ransomware accesses the device and encrypts the stored files, it is added to all .ecrypt files. After the encryption process is completed, two files, one HTML and one TXT (“YOUR_FILES_HAS_BEEN_ENCRYPTED.txt” and “YOUR_FILES_HAS_BEEN_ENCRYPTED.html”), are generated and placed on the desktop.
This file contains the information for the victim to contact the group to pay the ransom, and then retrieve the primary decryption key, which is left on a remote server. The ransom amount needs to be paid in cryptocurrencies, usually Bitcoin.
There is no guarantee that the decryption key will actually be released after payment, to government authorities do not recommend that ransom payments are paid. For, these payments fund the groups to carry out new attacks.
There are companies that specialize in recovering data encrypted by ransomware, and Digital Recovery has been prominent on the global data recovery scene.
The recovery of files encrypted by the Erebus ransomware needs to be done by a company that specialises in these cases, as any error can permanently damage the data stored.
