Under crisis, split-second reactions are required to successfully deal with the situation. Above all, Onion ransomware is not a trivial issue as one needs to pay hefty ransom in Bitcoins for decrypting files. Further, it works on countdown mechanism meaning that the ransom had to be paid before the specified deadline, else all data will be lost. Decrypting files is next to impossible as in such cases, cybercriminals use complex cryptographic scheme which is quite difficult to penetrate. However, to regain access to files there are two options i.e. either to pay the ransom (not a recommended one) or to seek professional data recovery assistance.
What troubled the most was the data stored in the hard drive. As Talbros Group has notable international partners, they simply cannot overlook the fact of data breach which could have led to the domino effect.
