SamSam Ransomware Recovery Services
When it comes to cyberattacks, ransomware is one of the most vicious hacks that a criminal has in their arsenal. The cruel notion of taking someone’s data and personal belongings and holding them to ransom over a digital system is one that should strike fear into any innocent technology user.
Here, we’ll let you know about a kind of ransomware, named SamSam ransomware, that many cybercriminals utilize, and how Alvaka will be able to help you should you ever come into that kind of trouble in the future.
So, What Actually Is SamSam Ransomware?
SamSam is different from typical ransomware as it stays inside a system and spies for a while without being spotted or detected. During that time, the ransomware is mapping out your entire network architecture so that it can encrypt every single possible file. The malicious software will slowly make its way through a vulnerable system using brute-force tactics and later make it next to impossible for the victim to access any of their own private info and data. The cybercriminals will then want a ransom – usually money. These criminals are known for hacking large businesses that will provide them with lots of money, but they also target smaller businesses, too.
Victims will know when they have been infiltrated as notice will be left behind for them to see. The notice will include information and instructions on how to obtain cryptocurrency in order to pay the requested ransom.
How Does It Impact Victims?
If the victim is not protected enough, the cybercriminals will be able to infiltrate a lot more, meaning they are even more likely to be successful in their theft. A user’s entire funds can be drained if they are not careful. There have been many, many cases of SamSam ransomware attacks in recent years, and millions of dollars have been stolen. The USA experienced this badly in 2018 as the first quarter, nearly a dozen healthcare organizations were targeted. The city of Atlanta also lost over seven million dollars, according to reports.
How Long Does It Take to Recover from Such an Attack?
While being attacked in this manner is far from ideal, the process is usually a quick one due to the way in which the cybercriminals operate. Your system can be back up and running fairly quickly, but your other aspects depend on how heavy you are hit, of course.
