What Happens During a BlackBasta Ransomware Incident?

Like many other ransomware groups, BlackBasta uses a double-extortion tactic to get a ransom paid by their victim.

BlackBasta ransomware is thought to gain access to your system through targeted spear-phishing campaigns. Usually, the malware will sit on your system for days or weeks before you are made aware of it. During this time, the BlackBasta ransomware group explore your system, stealing valuable data.

When they have the data they want, they encrypt the files so that you are unable to access them. At this stage, you will receive a ransom note, which will demand a payment in exchange for a decryption key that will enable you access to your files. The note will also threaten to leak your data should you not follow their instructions.

Paying a ransom does not always guarantee that you will be given a decryption key or that BlackBasta won’t release your data. This is why it is recommended that you employ an Incident Response Team.

How Should You Respond to a BlackBasta Ransomware Attack?

A fast response can reduce the spread of the attack and the time your systems are down. As we have BlackBasta ransomware recovery teams across the UK, we can deploy a team to your site on the same day you call us to quickly initiate an action plan.

Our 6-step response process starts with our on-site team gaining an understanding of what has happened and forming a bespoke action plan that is appropriate to resolve the attack.

The Digital Forensic Incident Response team will then investigate the breach, identifying encrypted data, system vulnerabilities, and the impacts on the system. With this complete, the on-site team and remote team work together to contain the spread of the BlackBasta ransomware breach and mitigate the damage done.  

Once the attack has been contained, the incident recovery team will remove the root cause of the attack so that your system isn’t at risk of another breach. At this stage, they will, where possible, start recovering data and restoring your system.

The process will finish with a written report that will include digital forensic evidence of the BlackBasta ransomware attack, that can be used as evidence in criminal prosecutions or insurance claims, and details of our response.
