What Will You Experience From A Lockbit Attack?

LockBit and LockBit3, the improved version of LockBit ransomware are constantly evolving, so attacks differ slightly from case to case. However, the structure and result of each attack are almost always the same.  

LockBit and LockBit3 ransomware groups will first gain unauthorised access to your network or system through phishing emails, exploiting vulnerabilities, or using stolen credentials. As the attackers work their way through your system, they will start encrypting files so that they are inaccessible to you.  

At this point, you will be presented with a ransom note on your system; this is usually in the form of a text file or pop-up message which will explain your files are encrypted and give details of how you will be able to get the decryption key.  

LockBit and LockBit3 ransomware groups will usually request a ransom payment, most likely in cryptocurrency, in exchange for the decryption key. This will often come alongside a threat of leaking the data if the ransom is not paid within a certain timeframe. However, it is unlikely that the ransomware group will give you a decryption key to decrypt your files, even if you pay the ransom. This is why employing a ransomware incident response team is so important.

What Should You Do If In This Position?

Swift action is the best course of action. Solace Cyber knows that a quick response is imperative in reducing the impact of the ransomware attack. We have various teams that allow us to provide national coverage, so no matter where you are, one of our teams can help, arriving on-site the same day you make the call. 

As soon as we get to you, we will start work on understanding exactly what has happened, when it happened and where it happened. We will assess the situation, identifying vulnerabilities, attack vectors, data loss, and system impacts.  

Once we have full visibility of the attack, our on-site team and remote team will begin work to limit damage and prevent LockBit or LockBit3 from spreading. 

Where possible, Solace Cyber will work to deliver a full restoration of the affected systems and services, making backups where possible and repairing or replacing infrastructure that was compromised.  

Once you are back up and running, we will complete a comprehensive report, going through the Digital Forensic Incident Report, which you will be able to use in any criminal prosecutions or insurance claims.
