HIVE is a ransomware group that has been active since June 2021 and continues to be prevalent in large-scale, commercial malware attacks.

Experiencing Ransomware or Cyber Breach?

Response time is everything when you are under attack. If you have been breached or have an urgent matter, contact us immediately.

How do you know you are experiencing an HIVE malware attack?

The first sign of a HIVE attack could be a ransom note sent to system users, threatening to leak their encrypted data on the dark web if a ransom isn't paid. However, the attack would have started long before that.

Email phishing tactics are frequently used to achieve initial system entry. Threat actors use malware-laden attachments to infiltrate critical business systems and utilise Remote Desktop Protocols (RDP) to achieve lateral movement across the estate, infecting the network and encrypting files as they go.

To circumvent anti-malware measures, HIVE destroys backups and disables antivirus and then works to minimise the forensic evidence that could be used to trace and investigate its activities.

As with any ransom demand, it's stated that in order to restore your systems and safeguard the privacy of your data, payment must be made. However, there is no guarantee that paying a ransom will result in either of these outcomes.

Solace Cyber's Approach to Handling a HIVE Ransomware Attack

Taking immediate action is the best plan of action. You should contact Solace Cyber as soon as you suspect you are under attack from HIVE ransomware.

Our Incident Response teams are strategically positioned to offer nationwide coverage. Upon receiving your call, Solace Cyber will dispatch the nearest team to your location. The team will then initiate work the same day, working to determine the precise details - meticulously evaluating the circumstances surrounding the breach, identifying vulnerabilities, potential points of attack, lost data, and the impact on the system.

Upon understanding the complete scope of the attack, both our on-site and remote teams will promptly work to minimise damage and reduce the spread of HIVE malware. We strive for a comprehensive restoration, including backups, repairs, or replacement infrastructure as needed.

After your data has been restored, we'll generate a thorough report which will analyse the digital forensic data left behind from the attack. This document can be used for criminal prosecutions or insurance claims.
