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

Exorcist Ransomware

Exorcist ransomware has surfaced on Russian dark web forums looking for affiliates willing to carry out attacks with its malware, the group offers 70% of the ransom to its affiliates.

This tactic is called RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) which is the outsourcing of attacks, is used to expand the group’s influence. Affiliates have some freedom to carry out attacks, one of the few restrictions being attacks on countries that are members of the former Soviet Union.

Several ransomware groups treat these countries with a certain amount of fear, the best explanation is that these groups control their attacks from these countries, and do not want the attention of the authorities, so they mainly target Western countries.

Exorcist uses AES 256 + RSA 4096 encryption, this combination of algorithms increases the reliability of the encryption, making it virtually impossible to break without the decryption key that the group keeps on a remote server.

All files affected by the ransomware are given an extension with a sequence of random characters, this extension is the same for all files, and the ransom note also carries in its name the random characters.

On the ransom note are all the necessary information for the victim to contact the criminals and pay the ransom, even though the group does not give any guarantees whether they will actually release the decryption key after payment.

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.
