Stormous Ransomware

Stormous ransomware emerged amid tensions between Russia and Ukraine. As the invasion of Ukraine began, Stormous took a pro-Russia stance.

Along with the Conti ransomware, which have been at the forefront of cyberattacks against countries that are opposed to Russia. This conflict has shown the advancement of modern warfare that goes far beyond war power.

In the face of threats made by Conti against cyber infrastructures of western companies, Stormous has been engaged in these attacks.

The group emerged timidly in January 2022, with an attack on a French company. Following that attack, the group attacked the US company Serta Inc, and then the Spanish healthcare facility, Fatima Hospital.

All their companies attacked are from the West, a peculiar feature of this group is that the ransom note is written in Arabic, which may indicate their origin.

It is not known for sure if the Stormous attacks are only political or if they aim at financial gain, but from what everything indicates financial gain is the group’s target.

The group acts with the tactic of double extortion, which is the encryption and theft of data, the stolen files are leaked if the victim does not pay the ransom. The group has been leaking the files of the attacked companies.

Even with all this chaotic scenario, recovery of files encrypted by ransomware is possible, even without the decryption key.

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.

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.
