Nyx Ransomware

Nyx ransomware is the newest variant recently discovered by cyber researchers. This new ransomware practices one of the most feared strategies for ransomware attack victims: double extortion.

This refers to the fact that they not only encrypt the data, but also steal it. In this way, they can exert greater pressure, threatening to release the stolen data if there is a delay in paying the ransom.

Unfortunately, this psychological pressure technique ends up working. For this reason, new ransomware variants decide to adopt the same strategy.

But to make the double extortion work, Nyx ransomware follows a well-defined methodology.

Once the environment is hacked, the attackers then launch the Nyx ransomware, which takes care of scouring the environment for files relevant to the encryption.

The Nyx ransomware then copies the selected files to a system belonging to those responsible for the attack. It is precisely this data which will be used as pressure for the double extortion.

Only then can the files be encrypted. Nyx ransomware adds the following structured extension to all encrypted files: [victim unique ID].[attacker contact email address].NYX

A ransom note called READ_ME.txt is then generated so that the victim can contact the attackers and pay the ransom.

For sure, being a victim of a situation like this is terrible and can become even more serious when you are not accompanied by professionals.

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.
