Ransomeware Incident Response

GIS Council Ransomeware decryption tool

Ransomware is a subset of malware in which the data on a victim's computer is locked, typically by encryption, and payment is demanded before the ransomed data is decrypted and access returned to the victim. The motive for ransomware attacks is nearly always monetary, and unlike other types of attacks, the victim is usually notified that an exploit has occurred and is given instructions for how to recover from the attack. Payment is often demanded in a virtual currency, such as bitcoin, so that the cybercriminal's identity isn't known.

Anti Ransomeware Tool Overview

ansomware clean-up tools are one of three types. Number one are disinfection tools for PCs that need to be certified clean before data is restored after an incident, a feature that is integrated into a small number of mainstream anti-virus programmes. A second rarer category will help with decryption of specific ransomware attacks although these tend to be very limited and depend on researchers recovering individual key databases after police action against the criminals. A third are protection tools, not strictly clean-up but interesting all the same. These use behavioural analysis to spot the sorts of events that suggest ransomware is on a system and intercept it before it can do any damage.
