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

Alkhal Ransomware

Ransomware attacks have been on the rise around the world, and with that comes a new threat, Alkhal ransomware.

It acts like a Trojan horse, it is downloaded through files, emails, malicious websites, program downloads, these are just a few ways. After being downloaded the ransomware installs itself on the operating system.

Alkhal ransomware can invade the internal network of a company and compromise all stored files, whether in databases or even virtual machines.

After encrypting the files, the .alkhak extension is automatically added to all files, and an image is created with the terms for the ransom with the name “Recovery.bmp” and also a document is generated with the name “ReadMe.txt”, in it contains the information for the victim to get in touch. The group usually uses two emails: ‘alkhal@tutanota.com’ and ‘cyrilga@tutanota.com’.

The ransomware groups are only after money, so they create strategies to pressure the victim to pay as soon as possible, even though the release of the decryption key is not guaranteed after the ransom is paid.

The recommended thing to do after suffering a ransomware attack is to inform the authorities about the attack and, immediately, seek a company specialised in recovering encrypted data. Time in such cases is key to decreasing the financial damage caused by ransomware.

So as soon as you identify that your data has been encrypted by Alkhal ransomware contact Digital Recovery to get the recovery done as quickly as possible.

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.
