IceFire Ransomware

The IceFire ransomware emerged in the first half of March 2022, the group has applied the tactic of double extortion, which consists of locking the system by encryption and stealing sensitive files with the intention of disclosing them if the company does not pay the ransom.

IceFire uses the AES+RSA encryption algorithm, this is an extremely powerful encryption, it generates a unique decryption key, decryption is only done with this key which is kept by the group on a remote private server.

The group charges a high ransom for the release of the decryption key, but not only for that, this price is also charged so that no company files are released.

The group has concentrated its attacks on English speaking users, there have been numerous reported attacks around the world by the group.

It is not known for sure what is the main way the group uses to break into the victim’s system but it is most likely through spam and phishing email campaigns.

After IceFire hacks the system it copies the files and uploads them to its servers and encrypts the original files. All files affected and by the ransomware are given the extension .iFire.

A file is left with named “iFire-readme.txt” in it are the ransomware terms for the decryption key and a link to the group’s website in the TOR browser. After contact, the group sets the ransom amount that must be paid in cryptocurrency, the currency used by the group is Monero.

Even with the payment, the groups do not give any guarantee that the decryption key will be delivered or that the stolen data will not be disclosed. So, think very carefully before negotiating with hackers.

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.
