What should you do about the Ransomware infection while you are waiting for a recovery quote?

Knowledge is power! – It is essential to understand the facts behind ransomware to better protect yourself

Ransomware occurs on a system due to weak security of some sort. If you are reading this you are properly a victim!

Here is some information you need to understand and take seriously

How is your system been comprised and infected with ransomware?

  1. Cybercriminals will run a BOT (A bot is a form of an automated scan searching the interned for valurnerable network systems and attempt to comprise its security)
  2. Once your system vulnerability has been identified, Hackers will buy the comprised list through underground websites
  3. The ransomware hackers will use the details to comprise and infect your system with ransomware
  4. Most often the BOT list is sold to multiple hackers

Have you removed the infected system from your network?

  1. This is a common mistake!! – isolating the infected system from your network is 50% of the solution.
  2. Hackers use group policy to distribute ransomware across your network and it remains undetected by most antivirus/malware software.
  3. Ransomware time-bomb, backdoor and keyloggers often implemented on your network to allow hackers to gain access to your network especially if you pay the ransom.

Please be warned, once you have been infected, its emanate that you are very likely to get another attack.

We recommend a full security check on your network to identify the penetration point(s) and make sure adequate security is implemented prior to your data recovery

We offer ransomware prevention and ransomware recovery services parallel to ensure your files are recovered on ransomware risk-free system without delaying the recovery of your files (our recovery and prevention teamwork parallel to ensure the prevention and recovery are done simultaneously)

Step 4: Initial Recovery Process

We will work on the original sample files submitted as part of the ticket

To decrypt your data, we use different methods, such as reverse-engineering, restoring from system backups, and best-known decryption methods.

If this approach doesn’t work, we also consider the negotiation and payment of the ransom to get your business back up as fast as possible. Even though we advise you not to pay the ransom, there is sometimes no other way to restore the business operation. We take the full risk for you and in most cases you will be covered by our “No Data, No Charge” guarantee.

Once the key has been identified, we will contact you or update the ticket to start the recovery on your infected system or on a separate computer.

We highly recommend you take a backup of your infected files to an external drive and have it removed from your network

We require remote access via team viewer ( or screen connect (

Further instructions will be sent by email including a Pre-Recovery checklist to ensure a trouble-free recovery

Step 5: Actual Recovery

Upon a successful remote connection, we will run a report to confirm the files/ID we are recovering. Please let us know immediately if you find more IDs, ransomware notes, or extensions (ask us for assistance if required)

We can connect to the original infected computer or to another computer with your encrypted data,

We start the recovery process and check random files to ensure they are opening successfully and confirm successful recovery.

Your ticket will be updated to advise of the recovery completion

All recoveries are done directly on your system. No Data will be taken offsite.

We will keep you updated throughout the recovery process and we are contactable 24/7 for your convenience.

Note1: We highly recommend a complete backup of your files to an external drive (and have it disconnected from the infected system before we commence recovery)

Note2: Please ensure your network has been scanned and cleaned properly before any data recovery. Talk to us for advice

Note2: In some instances, we may require your data to be moved to a separate computer.
