IN FEAR OF RANSOMWARE?

External attacks are growing rapidly and a couple of years ago we read about major attacks in media. Today we hear about attacks from people we know.

 

A major change today is that the attackers are addressing the backup system. By doing that the perpetrator have blocked all possibilities to restore the data after silently encryption the backup environment. Next step is to address the rest of the infrastructure and claiming the ransom.

 

ABOUT RANSOMWARE ATTACKS 
Source Wikipedia

Ransomware is a type of malware from cryptovirology that threatens to publish the victim's data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid. While some simple ransomware may lock the system so that it is not difficult for a knowledgeable person to reverse, more advanced malware uses a technique called cryptoviral extortion. It encrypts the victim's files, making them inaccessible, and demands a ransom payment to decrypt them.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO WHEN RANSOMWARE ATTACKS

First you need to understand the situation, what data is encrypted, how important is the data for your organization etc. Then you need to lock down and stop all external communication. Now you need to identify the infection and prepare for a restore from your backup.

HOW TO PREVENT TO GET ENCRYPTED

We are adding functionalities to help organizations to avoid encryption and risk of external attacks by securing the backup data and make restores available if an attack appears.
