Robin Hood Ransomware

The Robin Hood ransomware has been active for many years, the first appearance was recorded in 2017, and since then there are numerous records of attacks and updates made on the malware.

During these years there were a few times when there were interruptions in the attacks, but the group always returned with the attacks. And now at the end of this year, the group has returned with the attacks, perhaps because of the end of year festivities. Holidays and weekends are commonly used by cybercriminals to make attacks.

Robin Hood, unlike other ransomware groups, does not move laterally through a company’s network; rather, once it has invaded a computer it disables all system shares with the company network, thus isolating the affected computer. The group attacks the computers individually.

In addition to isolating the computer from the network, the malware stops 181 Windows services, including Windows Automatic Repair. After interrupting all services the ransomware starts the encryption process, after finishing the process a message “Have fun buddy :)))” is left. And the ransom note with instructions for the victim to contact the group is fixed on the desktop.

One of the best backups against a ransomware attack, besides protections like antivirus, is backup. But the problem is that not all companies have a backup routine or have their backups online, ransomware groups have invested in developing for the malware to search for such backups.

So, it is necessary to have offline and up-to-date backups. But in case, there are no such backups, the help of a company specializing in ransomware encrypted data recovery will be necessary.

Digital Recovery is used to acting in critical scenarios, we can recover encrypted data without the need for the decryption key.

For more than two decades we have invested in the development of technologies suitable for data recovery. With this we were able to develop the Tracer, a technology capable of recovering virtually all enterprise data storage devices such as Databases, RAID Systems, Storages, Virtual Machines and others.

All our processes were developed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and we also provide the confidentiality agreement (NDA).

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.
