Decrypt BAK Files

BAK files can be decrypted using unique and exclusive solutions.

BAK files are usually backups of important files such as databases, documents, spreadsheets, etc. Depending on the type of ransomware, even BAK files can be targeted for encryption. This can happen when ransomware is designed to encrypt all types of files found on a system.

Encrypting these backups adds an extra level of impact to the attack as it removes the user’s option to simply restore the files from a backup.

Ransomware is a type of malware that cybercriminals use to encrypt a user or organisation’s data, making it inaccessible. The goal of these attacks is usually to extort money from victims in exchange for the decryption key.

If users do not have a proper backup of their data, they may be forced to pay the ransom to recover the data. This is why BAK files have been targeted by ransomware groups, because if they are encrypted the options are drastically reduced.

Ransomware usually uses strong encryption algorithms, such as RSA or AES, which make it virtually impossible to decrypt the files without the correct key, however, specialised companies, such as Digital Recovery, are able to decrypt BAK files.

Why Digital Recovery?

Digital Recovery specialises in data recovery, with expertise in ransomware decryption. Our technologies allow us to decrypt BAK files.

For more than 20 years we have been working on the development of unique technologies for the recovery of lost data, today we can recover data on RAID systems, storages (NAS, DAS, SAN), databases, servers, among others.

We provide all our clients with a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), as we know that confidentiality is a fundamental part of the process. We have taken care to develop all our solutions based on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

For cases of extreme urgency, we have developed recovery in emergency mode, in which our laboratories work with 24×7 availability.

Answers from our experts

What are BAK files and why are they targets of ransomware attacks?

BAK files are usually backup files created by various programmes. In many cases, they contain copies of important files or databases that are created for restoration in case of data loss. Due to their importance, BAK files can be targeted by ransomware, which can encrypt them to prevent user access, forcing victims to pay a ransom to regain access.

How can a ransomware attack affect BAK files?

A ransomware attack can encrypt BAK files, making them inaccessible. This can be especially damaging if the original files were also affected by the ransomware, as backups would be the main way to restore those files without paying the ransom.

How does ransomware gain access to BAK files?

As with other file types, ransomware attacks can gain access to BAK files by exploiting software vulnerabilities, tricking users through social engineering or phishing tactics, or through direct attacks on storage systems or servers that host these files.

What are the best practices to protect BAK files from ransomware attacks?

Some best practices for protecting BAK files from ransomware attacks include keeping software and operating systems up-to-date to protect against known vulnerabilities, implementing strict access controls, using robust security solutions to detect and prevent ransomware, and storing copies of backups in secure locations disconnected from the main network.

Latest insights from our experts

What you need to know

We have a full knowledge of the main virtual machines on the market, as well as exclusive technologies that allow us to recover data regardless of the reason that led to data loss.

Our technologies allow us to recover data from the following virtual machines:

  • Microsoft Hyper-V
  • Oracle VirtualBox
  • VMware
  • XenServer
  • RedHat VM
  • Citrix
  • Acropolis
  • Microsoft Virtual PC
  • QEMU

It is not possible to establish a price without first diagnosing the affected virtual machine, we can make an in-depth diagnosis in the first 24 hours, after which we provide the budget.

It is worth remembering that the payment is only made after the recovery process has been finalised and after the verification of the recovered files made by the client himself.
