SynAck Ransomware

The SynAck ransomware is not particularly new. It first appeared in the year 2017. At that time, the technology used in SynAck ransomware was very similar to other types of ransomware. The group behind the SynAck ransomware participated heavily in the evolution of ransomware attacks.

In fact, you don’t have many reports of victims of SynAck ransomware attacks. So I wonder why SynAck was so important in the evolution of ransomware?

In the cyber world, malware often uses what is called obfuscation so that the attacked system’s antiviruses don’t detect them. However, antivirus developers understood this and quickly remedied the problem.

On the other hand, a new version of the SynAck malware was created. This update brought remarkable improvements that managed to revolutionise and inspire the new generations of ransomware.

Improvements such as complete obfuscation of the code and its compilation, making detection significantly more difficult for security solutions. SynAck was also the first ransomware to use the Doppelgänging process, which is a method of executing arbitrary code in the address space of a separate live process.

In addition, SynAck ransomware is able to restrict its attacks to specific regions and verify that the malware is installed in the correct directory. If it is not, it is not executed.

Unlike other ransomware, SynAck does not usually generate a text file as a ransom note but uses the session login screen itself to deliver its message. Two email addresses are made available for the victim to contact the group to retrieve and pay the ransom.

One of the means of contamination of the SynAck ransomware is mainly Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). So basically any company that is using this protocol becomes a potential prey for SynAck 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. 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.
