Decrypt VMware

We can recover VMware encrypted by most ransomware extensions.

VMware is a renowned company specialising in server virtualisation and data centre infrastructure, providing software solutions that enable organisations to create and manage virtualised IT environments in an efficient and scalable way. However, even with all the sophistication and security that VMware offers, no system is completely immune to cyber threats such as ransomware.

Ransomware is malware that aims to block access to data or computer systems, usually by encrypting them and demanding a ransom in exchange for the decryption key.

When a VMware virtual environment is compromised by a ransomware attack, the consequences can be devastating.

The attack begins with infiltration of the virtualised infrastructure. This can happen in various ways, including phishing, exploiting vulnerabilities or unauthorised access to credentials. Once ransomware has gained access to VMware systems, it begins to encrypt virtual discs, virtual machines and configuration files, making them inaccessible to users and administrators.

The encryption of virtual machines in a VMware infrastructure is particularly worrying, as it directly affects availability and business continuity. Organisations that rely heavily on their virtual environments to run critical applications can face significant downtime.

Negotiating with the criminals behind ransomware is a difficult decision for organisations to make. Paying the ransom does not guarantee the safe recovery of data, and it can also encourage future attacks. In addition, there are legal and ethical implications involved. Solutions for decrypting ransomware files are the best choice in these cases, and are offered by Digital Recovery.

Answers from our experts

How does ransomware usually infiltrate a VMware environment?

Ransomware can enter a VMware environment via various routes, such as phishing, exploiting vulnerabilities, unauthorised access to credentials or even via the physical servers that host the virtual machines.

What are the consequences of a ransomware attack on a VMware infrastructure?

The consequences include interruption of operations, loss of data, recovery costs, reputational damage and possible legal implications. Recovery of systems and data can be complicated due to the virtualised nature of the infrastructure.

Is it advisable to pay the ransom demanded by criminals after a VMware ransomware attack?

The decision to pay the ransom is complex and controversial. There is no guarantee that the criminals will provide the decryption key after payment, and paying the ransom could encourage more attacks. It is generally advisable to consult law enforcement authorities before making a decision.

How can organisations protect themselves against ransomware attacks in VMware environments?

Protection involves implementing robust security measures, such as regular software updates, cyber security awareness, strict access control and advanced security solutions. Having a solid backup and recovery strategy is also key, including segregating offline backup copies to prevent them from being encrypted.

Latest insights from our experts

What you need to know

We have a thorough knowledge of the main virtual machines on the market, as well as exclusive technologies that enable us to recover data regardless of the reason for the 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 carry out an in-depth diagnosis within the first 24 hours, after which we will provide you with a quote.

It’s worth remembering that payment is only made after the recovery process has been finalised and after the client has checked the recovered files themselves.

Through unique technologies Digital Recovery can bring back encrypted data on any storage device, offering remote solutions anywhere in the world.
