SunCrypt Ransomware

SunCrypt ransomware, also known as Ransom.SunCrypt, is one of the clear examples of how ransomware groups act after successful attacks on large companies.

After these attacks they shut down for a while and then a new ransomware comes out, which is just a derivation of the old ransomware, in other words, they just change the name and continue with the same tactics.

The SunCrypt ransomware appeared under the name QNAPCrypt, also known as eCh0raix, they were known at the time by the attacks directed at the Linux operating system and the search for NAS servers (Network Attached Storage), they were specialized in this.

After some time and several successful attacks, the group disappeared and appeared later under the name SunCrypt, and since then has remained with that name. But with a curious feature, the fact that they claimed to team up with Maze HQ, who control the Maze, Lockbit and Ragnar Locker ransomware.

Three malware that have acted frantically and have become big among ransomware groups. SunCrypt claimed that it joined the group as they were not keeping up with the demand.

Interestingly, sometime later the Maze cartel vehemently denied SunCrypt joining their cartel. There was no further comment from SunCrypt about it.

But the fact is that after the supposed merger with Maze, SunCrypt attacks increased rapidly. We may never know if in fact there was this union between them, but the truth is that the attacks continue. The group has focused on educational institutions and hospitals.

The group operates with the RaaS (Ransomware as a service) tactic that the outsourcing of attacks, it was seen on Dark Web forums the group looking for partners who want to do attacks with their ransomware.

Ultimately it can be seen that SunCrypt is seeking authority on the global ransomware scene. This is worrying because the way they consolidate themselves in the market is with successful attacks, this shows how committed the group is to increasing the numbers of their attacks.

Given this, it is important that you know a company that is able to recover files encrypted by SunCrypt ransomware.

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.

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.
