Only 8% of ransomware victims get all their data back

International. HelpRansomware highlights that obtaining the decryption key does not involve restoring the encrypted files, as decryption and recovery are two distinct stages that a ransomware victim must go through.

A ransomware decryption key, or ransomware decryption key, is a set of instructions that can be used to decrypt files that have been encrypted by ransomware. However, just because you have access to your encrypted file doesn't mean it can be decrypted.

Ransomware decryption software is a type of program that can decrypt hijacked files if you are affected by a cyberattack. It does this by generating a decryption key based on what it knows about the ransomware, decrypting the files, and restoring them to their original form.

It should be noted that decryption software is designed to be used before the system is encrypted, to collect all the required information that will be needed when decrypting files on a computer.

Is it possible to decrypt a file without a decryption key?
There are five different basic techniques that can be used to achieve this.

  • Brute force attack: consists of trying all possible keys until you get the right one;
  • Frequency analysis: test many different combinations of characters; But its goal is to understand the frequency of characters in an encrypted file;
  • Periodicity analysis: uses algorithms to detect and analyze out-of-the-ordinary behaviors;
  • Statistics: these are used to develop ransomware behavior models to find vulnerabilities, but also to look up the decryption key based on probabilistic calculations;
  • The dictionary attack: this is based on producing possible decryption keys from the words in a dictionary.

HelpRansomware has an online guide on how to obtain a decryption key and recover ransomware-hijacked data.
