AVERAGE LENGTH OF EGREGOR INCIDENT

Recovery from Egregor ransomware is well below the average, but this is a fairly new variant and the sample size has not matured yet. The group uses a TOR based site for communications but the tools are manually delivered after payment. Unique keys are left on all encrypted hosts, and the ransom notes must be collected and sent to the threat actor if decryptors are needed. A separate decryptor is provided for each key.

WHAT DATA RECOVERY RATE IS EXPECTED WHEN PAYING FOR A EGREGOR RANSOMWARE DECRYPTOR?

The data recovery rate for Egregor is high but victims often run into similar issues that plague most other variants. Large applications and databases are sometimes corrupted during encryption, and the recovery rate is usually dependent on the successful encryption of these files.
