We can recover data encrypted by ransomware from anywhere in the world using remote recovery.
Decrypting Database Files
RansomHunter specialises in highly complex cases, such as decrypting ransomware files stored in databases.
The main targets of ransomware groups are structures with large amounts of data, which makes databases the most targeted types of data. When ransomware invades a system, it looks for files to encrypt, aiming for high ransom values.
Investing in a firewall has become an essential goal for any company, even if it doesn’t guarantee 100 per cent effectiveness in the case of ransomware attacks.
Ransomware attacks, however, are not the only cause of data loss in databases. Data is lost due to operational failures, partition corruption, hardware problems and more.
Blocking or losing data stored in databases can become a major loss, paralysing a company.
RansomHunter specialises in decrypting Oracle, MS SQL, My SQL and Firebird databases.
Process for Recovering a Database
Fill in the form and we will contact you to start the decryption process of your files. Always at your disposal, 24×7.
Remote File Submission
The files are sent to a controlled and totally secure virtual environment.
We assess the extent of the damage caused by the ransomware.
We decrypt the files using a proprietary technology.
Homologation and Rollback
The client validates the integrity of the restored files.
What to do if you are hit by a Ransomware
Isolate the Affected Device From the Rest of the NetworkMany ransomware can move laterally in the hacked system, potentially reaching the other internal servers, so restricting the malware’s range is vital.
Check BackupIf the backup is up to date and has not been reached by the ransomware, the data can be restored quickly without further damage.
Avoid Contact With the CriminalsHackers use psychological tactics to pressure the victim who is already weakened by the attack. Hackers rely on this weakness to extort the victim more easily.
Don’t Negotiate With Criminals
Any payment is strongly discouraged by government authorities, as these amounts finance the group for further attacks, and there is no guarantee that the decryption key will in fact be released.
Contact Government Authorities
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) leads the U.S. government’s efforts to combat cyber attacks.
Contact a Company That Specializes in Decrypting Ransomware Files
The damage caused by operational downtime can exceed the ransom value, so hiring a company like RansomHunter to decrypt the files is the best option.

Frequently Asked Questions AboutRansomware Recovery
Every day, ransomware attacks are more developed. After a successful
attack attempt, the ransomware quickly
maps the user’s most important files to
begin encryption. Microsoft Office files,
databases, PDFs and images 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, our solutions are an alternative to paying the ransom.
Yes, in the vast majority of scenarios, RansomHunter was able to decrypt the ransomware files without paying the ransom. This is only technically feasible because of the in-house development of a technology capable of reconstructing the data in a complete and structured way.
After the first contact and sending of the data, we will carry out a diagnosis of the files to check the extent of the damage caused by the ransomware, with which we can project the duration of the process and provide the quote.
Once the client has approved the quote, we begin the decryption process, using exclusive software that, with the help of our experts, can reconstruct the data.
Once the process is complete, we will double-check so that the client can verify the integrity of the recovered files (usually in a remote session).
Payment is only made once the client has validated the data.
