So he said to obtain a working decryption key Garmon must have paid the ransom to the attackers and he said this is where he said is not known how much was paid, but as previously stated, an employee told bleeping computer that the original ransom demand was for ten million dollars. When extracted this restoration package? This is the one that they that they received. A copy of that had been prepared by garments it department. This.

When bleeping computer subsequently reached out to cove where they were told that they do not comment on any ransomware incidents reported in the media. And similarly emphasise soft toll bleeping computer that they could not comment on any cases that they create decryption tools and are not involved in ransom payments. Brett callow a threat analyst at. Mc Soft said, I cannot comment on specific cases, but generally speaking emphasis soft has no involvement whatsoever in negotiating or transacting ransom payments. We simply create decryption tools. Okay. Now, that's interesting news. So it might seem odd for a reputable security firms such as m soft to to have anything to do with ransomware, but they have an interesting angle. As we know, the decryption side of the ransomware mess sometimes receives much less attention from the bad guys who need to create the decrypt her Dan, the encryption side. Consequently. The decrypt have tended historically to be buggy to crash or to for some reason, fail to fully undo the damage that they had originally done despite. Having, received a valid key. So that's where M soft comes in. They reverse engineer questionable ransomware decrypt. There's for which the decryption key is known. To create a more robust and reliable decrypt her for a victims systems. Emphasis soft ransomware recovery services, page states if the ransomware. If the ransom has been paid, but the attacker provided decrypt is slow or faulty. We can extract the decryption code and create a custom built solution that decrypt up to fifty percent faster with less risk of data damage or loss. So. This also explains why the decryption package garment finally used also contained legitimate security software. That extra security software along with improved decrypt, her may have been provided by emphasis soft or may have been. Put together by garments it. And of course, as we mentioned last week, now that evil corporate has been attributed as the creator of wasted locker and has been placed on the US sanctions list for using dry decks to cause more than one hundred, million dollars in financial damages. Paying this ransom could lead to hefty fines from the government. So do these sanctions sources familiar with cove where have told bleeping computer that the negotiation company has placed wasted locker on their own restricted list starting in early July and will not be handed handling negotiations for related attacks.
