If your files have been encrypted, we accept the challenge of analyzing your case.

PYSA Ransomware

The PYSA (Protect Your System Amigo) Ransomware or Mespinoza Ransomware has been operating effectively on the internet for a long time. He is famous for numerous attacks. So much so that the FBI has released a warning of the dangers of this ransomware. 

It has been in operation since December 2019 and remains active today. In order to pressure victims to make payments they disclose part of the encrypted files to the public, which can bring serious consequences for the company under the law. 

PYSA is a RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) tool that outsources attacks, this ransomware is for sale to people who do not have the ability to develop the virus. This type of tactic increases the proportion of attacks, many groups have acted in the same way. 

Victims of the PYSA Ransomware

In March 2020, the FBI released a warning on its Twitter about the increase in PYSA ransomware attacks, targeted attacks on American and British schools. Many had part of their information leaked on the Dark Web. 

Government authorities can do little for the victims of attacks, if the company does not have an up-to-date backup it will be practically forced to pay the ransom amount to cybercriminals. 

This may seem like the only viable way out, but it’s not! We at Digital Recovery were able to develop technologies capable of recovering files encrypted by ransomware without the need for a decryption key. 

PYSA Ransomware Encrypted File Recovery

A few years ago this type of recovery was virtually impossible to do, but the rise in ransomware attacks has given us a sense of urgency in creating a technology capable of recovering this data. And, after a lot of study and a lot of investment, we were finally able to develop the Tracer. 

Today, we are among the select group of companies that can recover files encrypted by ransomware. 

Our solutions are customised to meet the real needs of each customer, all these solutions are in accordance with the guidelines of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and we also have an available NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement). 

We need to access the invaded Hard Disk so that we can run an advanced diagnosis and start the process of rebuilding the files. 

Count on our professionals so that the recovery is done in the safest possible way, and for urgent cases we provide emergency mode recovery.

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.
