Throughout this article I will show you how MySQL came to be the best known data storage program and what are the causes of data loss, and how to do recovery of database attacked by ransomware.
Let’s take a closer look at it and see what it has to be so successful on the market.
What is MySQL?
MySQL was created in 1995 by David Axmark and Michael Widenius, two Swedish programmers.
MySQL AB is the developer of MySQL, the company was bought by a number of companies over time and today the company is owned by Oracle, the American giant.
Today MySQL is the most widely used data storage program (DBMS) in the world. Its ease and speed have caught the attention of large companies. Companies such as Wikipedia, Motorola, Bradesco, Sony and even NASA use this program. This already shows its quality and effectiveness.
MySQL is a relational data storage program, i.e. the data is separated in specified folders for each piece of information, and these folders are related to each other to facilitate the organization of the files.
MySQL uses SQL (Structured Query Language). It partitions the information for easy organization. The program is simple and works on any platform. And, it continues to advance constantly. SQL also has its system open, letting customers change its interface as much as they want.
MySQL’s system analyzes all your information to avoid any duplicate files and detects and resolves any kind of file failure.
MySQL has a high availability, it is always available for you to access your data. Should something happen to your servers, your data and files are safe.
MySQL Data Loss
MySQL is not completely fail-safe, like any other system, no matter how technological, data loss is a real risk. There are a few reasons for data loss in MySQL:
- Human error – The most recurring is by human error, an accidental deletion or even a formatting.
- Hacker attack – There are also data loss by ransomware attacks, which is very dangerous.
- Internal errors – There can also be an error in the MySQL program itself that can corrupt the data as it is being recorded.
Data loss by ransomware attack is the most worrying and dangerous, hacker groups develop their malicious programs for targeted database attacks, targeting to encrypt all the files stored in the system.
These attacks cause losses due to the downtime of the company, the blocking of the files, and generate losses due to the huge amount of money that is demanded in ransom for the release of the decryption key.
Many companies can recover databases that have lost their data due to physical or logical damage, but few can decrypt databases attacked by ransomware, among them RansomHunter.
Decrypt MySQL Database Files
Database decryption is extremely difficult to do because of the large amount of data, and especially when it is relational like MySQL.
RansomHunter has deep knowledge about database and develops exclusive technologies to enable us to decrypt files affected by ransomware.
We act in cases of high complexity, our DBA’s are highly qualified and available to act at any time.
Our solutions can be executed remotely, this speeds up the data recovery process time. During the entire process, the customer will be accompanied by our specialist, who will provide constant feedback on the progress of the process.
