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

RansomEXX

RansomEXX is part of the group that has been most active recently, this group is made up of the Defray 777 and Ransom X ransomware. Together they are responsible for hundreds of attacks around the world.

RansomEXX was developed to attack Windows operating systems, but over time has been updated and can also attack Linux operating systems, although Linux encryption is not as effective as Windows.

After the invasion, the ransomware disables all programs that could identify it or prevent the process of encryption of the files. The encrypted files are left with the extension .EXX.

After all the files are encrypted the ransomware changes the desktop image with one made by the group containing directions on how to pay the ransom and hand over the decryption key.

RansomEXX has made three major attacks in recent years against Texas TxDOT, Konica Minolta and the Brazilian STJ (Superior Court of Justice). The group targets its attacks on state-owned and large private companies.

There are records of an attack made against Tyler Technologies, a software development company for the public sector in the United States, this attack paralysed the company that was forced to pay the ransom to the cybercriminals.

Embraer, one of the largest aircraft manufacturers in the world, owes part of its files posted on the group’s website.

All of this shows how the group controlling ransomEXX has grown and has shown itself with one of the largest ransomware groups in the world. The attacks made show the power they possess.

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.
