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

Haron Ransomware

Haron ransomware is relatively new, along with Blackmatter ransomware and AvosLocker it has been vying for the spot left by REvil Sodinokibi and Darkside and especially Evaddon ransomware which appears to be Haron’s direct predecessor.

The Haron group follows a “good manners” norm, they restrict attacks to specific sectors such as:

Hospitals.
Critical infrastructure facilities (nuclear power plants, power plants, water treatment facilities).
Oil and gas industry (pipelines, oil refineries).
Defence industry
Non-profit companies
Government Sector
If any of these sectors are attacked, the group says it will give away the decryption key for free, this is the same mode of operation as the BlackMatter ransomware.

The group works with the RaaS tactic (Ransomware as a Service) which is the outsourcing of attacks. In numerous Darkweb forums the group appears selling their services in exchange for a commission on the ransom value.

Haron ransomware attacks are focused on the Windows operating system. Most antivirus software cannot identify the presence of the ransomware after the invasion because the ransomware is virtually unnoticeable.

Haron’s encryption is so powerful that even after removing the virus the data can remain encrypted. And if that happens the recovery of the encrypted data will be necessary.

Recover Data Encrypted by Haron Ransomware

The recovery of encrypted data can only be done by a highly qualified company that has the tools and technologies that are suitable for such a service. And, few companies are capable of doing this service.

Among these few companies is Digital Recovery, which with more than two decades in the data recovery market. It was able to develop technologies that innovated the recovery of data encrypted by ransomware on any device, whether: RAID systems, Storage, Database, Servers, Virtual Machines and others. This ability to develop technologies has put us at the forefront of encrypted file recovery.

Because we know that we deal with data that can be sensitive for companies, we provide all our clients with the confidentiality agreement (NDA) as a guarantee that nothing about the process will be disclosed.

All our processes are in accordance with the General Law on Data Protection (LGPD).

During the entire process, the client is accompanied by a specialist who can clarify any questions about the process.

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.
