Xot5ik Ransomware

The Xot5ik ransomware is a variant of the Thanos ransomware, which has been responsible for numerous attacks, Europe has been the target of most attacks.

As usual for large ransomware groups, after numerous successful attacks they cease their activities because their attacks attract the attention of the authorities.

But after some time, the group reappears under a new name and with a new outfit, even though the main characteristics of the malware remain the same.

This is used as a distraction, the ransomware groups have found a goldmine with their attacks, they will hardly give up doing them.

Xot5ik ransomware invades devices through spam emails, cracked software download sites, and more.

Xot5ik uses RSA and AES encryption algorithm, which are the most used types in all ransomware.

After encrypting all files, a text file called “Инструкция.txt” is created, it is fixed on the desktop, in it is the terms for paying the ransom.

All encrypted files are given the extension .xot5ik, making it impossible for the user to access them.

The decryption key is kept in a remote server controlled by the criminals. The ransom is paid in cryptocurrencies.

There is no guarantee that the key will be released after the ransom is paid; the victim has to rely solely on the word of the criminals.

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.

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.
