Prometheus Ransomware

The Prometheus ransomware first appeared in February 2021, the FBI has issued an alert about it. It is a variant of the Thanos ransomware and claims to be an extension of the REvil Sodinokibi group, but there is no concrete evidence of a link between the two groups.

This tactic is used by newly created groups that do not yet have as much relevance in the medium. Using references to larger groups brings the group an authority that alone would not be easily achieved, bringing more weight to their name, making the hacked company take them more seriously and pay the ransom.

The standard ransom demanded by the group for each attack costs an average of $20,000.

The Prometheus Ransomware claims to have hacked 30 organisations and carried out attacks in some countries like the United States, Brazil, Norway and 15 more countries, and some Brazilian organisations like, Chilli Beans and the retail chain SINCOR have suffered attacks by this ransomware.

Ransomware maintains a focus on some specific areas, such as Manufacturing, Logistics, Financial, Agriculture, Security, Healthcare, Construction, Hospitals among others.

And Prometheus itself has a website for leaking the files, to shame companies and create pressure for them to pay the ransom. In case the payment does not occur in the determined time, the data auction starts.

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.

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.
