The Register: Less than half of paying ransomware targets get their files back

The Register: Less than half of paying ransomware targets get their files back. ” Paying off a ransomware demand is a great way to end up losing both your money and your files. This according a study from security company CyberEdge, which found that for those hit by a ransomware infection the best bet is probably to just restore from a backup. The survey, based on a poll of information security professionals, found that less than half of those who pay a ransom demand end up getting their data back.”

  1. It is important to try and identify your ransomware strain, if it is one of the RaaS you will probably be un-encrypted but nothing is guranteed. I would take the bullet and restore from a backup
