Decrypt Files Storage EqualLogic

Data loss is a real risk for any data storage device, and that includes EqualLogic Storage. And data recovery is not always so simple.

EqualLogic Storage is responsible for data storage, it is extremely useful for you who want to centralize all your company’s information in one place, and need all that information to be accessible quickly.

This makes this device a constant target for ransomware attacks, making it vital for companies to invest heavily in cybersecurity.

For clarity, let’s look separately at each aspect of EqualLogic Storage and see how it works.

Storage, What is it?

Storage has three configurations, they are: NAS (Network Attached Storage), DAS (Direct Attached Storage) and SAN (Storage Area Network).

Basically, storage serves to store data. It can store the information from a company’s computer network, thus centralizing all the information in one place. This makes it easier and faster to access information.

It can be used for backups, to expand data storage, and to centralize information on a network. Storage interconnects computers with IP (iSCSI) or Fibre Channel (FC) connections.

EqualLogic, What is it?

EqualLogic was an independent company founded in 2001. In 2008 it was bought by Dell, thus being added to the company’s portfolio. And now EqualLogic is one of Dell’s lines for data storage.

The EqualLogic line of storages has numerous models with different HD sizes and some even mix HD with SSD. Thus, speeding up both storage and access to information. Besides being an extremely secure line.

Storage security is directly linked with the network. For if the network is vulnerable, so is the storage. Ransomware groups have exploited security holes to break into and encrypt all files stored in EqualLogic.

Knowing this, it is important to make the proper security settings, to block any onslaught from hackers.

The PS Series is EqualLogic’s main line. The main models are PS4100, PS6100 and PS6500.

When we think about a data storage device, we must also think about how secure the data will be, and in the event of a system failure, how to do data recovery.

One of the biggest dangers to business data is not ordinary data loss, but ransomware attacks, in recent years there has been a growth in ransomware groups and successful attacks.

The recovery of encrypted files is extremely sensitive, as any process done without proper knowledge of the Storage and ransomware features can completely corrupt all stored files.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ransomware Recovery

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.

Yes, yet the ransomware is designed not to be identified by the firewall, so it can infiltrate the company’s internal system and disable defenses, move laterally, and alter backup routines.

The user can identify the ransomware action, even if the system cannot identify it, the malware uses the system’s own resources for the encryption process, and may be slow to respond to user requests.

The file extensions are changed, a specific extension is added that mentions the attacker group. Stay tuned for these signs.

Yes, it is possible. But there is a risk that some files will be corrupted. Once you identify the ransomware action on the system, disconnect the device from the internet, this will break the group communication with the malware, some ransomware can continue encryption even without internet access.

You can also initiate antivirus countermeasures to isolate the malware and delete it, if the antivirus has not been disabled by the ransomware.

Stopping the encryption is extremely difficult, the ransomware is designed to disable any system or user countermeasures, decreasing the chances of the process being interrupted.

The attacks usually happen when there is a drop in the flow of users in the system, which happens on weekends and holidays, during the early hours of the morning, making these dates suitable for attacks.

There are numerous encryption algorithms, but the most widely used are RSA [Rivest-Shamir-Adleman]-2048 and AES [Advanced Encryption Standard].

First of all, keep calm, criminals count on the victim’s desperation. Follow these tips:

  • Isolate the affected device – The ransomware can move laterally through the system and reach other devices, so it is important to isolate its field of action.
  • Verify backup – If the backup has not been reached by the ransomware, data can be quickly restored without major problems.
  • Avoid contact with criminals – Criminals use psychological tactics to extort as much money as possible in the shortest possible time, the fact that the victim is emotionally involved with the incident makes him an easy target.
  • Don’t negotiate with the criminals – The group gives no guarantee that the decryption key will be released after the ransom is paid, you have to take only the criminals’ word for it. Besides the payment will fund the group for further attacks.
  • Contact government authorities – The government has agencies that specialize in combating cyber attacks, which will investigate the case.
  • Contact a company that specializes in decrypting Ransomware files – RansomHunter is able to decrypt ransomware files without the need for the decryption key, their solutions are an option to paying the ransom.

After the first contact and sending of the data we will diagnose the files to check the extent of the damage caused by ransomware, with this we can project the duration of the process and provide the budget.

After the client approves the budget, we start the decryption process, for this we have exclusive software that can, with the help of our specialists, reconstruct the data.

After the end of the process we will do a double check so that the client can verify the integrity of the recovered files.

Payment is only made after delivery of the files and validation of the same by the client.
