Encrypted Data Recovery Solutions

Data encryption is a protection mechanism, which makes the data into an unreadable form using third party encryption software. The encryption utility uses high level algorithms that transform the original plain text into cypher text. In order to decrypt the encrypted data, you need to use a previously specified secret key, which triggers the algorithm to transform it back to the original plain text form.

Some of the errors that you may receive due to any encryption problem or while decrypting your encrypted data:

  • Decrypt Error
  • Media not encrypted
  • Fatal Error
  • SafeBoot Error/SafeBoot corrupted
  • SG kernel halted (On a Safe Guard encryption)
  • Blue Dump (An unusual blue screen of death) etc.

Ransomware Attack


Ransomware attack can severely damage your data as well as hard drive. If you encounter something unusual, use Stellar encrypted data recovery services.



Locky is newest of the ransomware clan and it follows the classic pattern, it attacks in silence and uses complicated AES – 128 ciphers and RSA encrypting algorithm to lock your personal files. Once it encrypts the data, the data format changes to .locky and it becomes inaccessible for the user. The virus scans the system for specific extensions and encrypts them, it mainly targets pictures, music, presentations, documents etc. and also, it encrypts mapped networks and even removable drives that may be plugged in that time. It also encrypts Bitcoin wallet files if there are thus making it virtually impossible for the user to BITCOINS. The virus hides in a word document and is distributed via spam emails, email attachments, file sharing networks from unknown senders. The following file types are targeted by the Locky ransomware virus and after encryption all the effected files have the .locky extension :".sxw, .ott, .odt, .DOC, .pem, .csr, .crt, .key, wallet.dat, .sxc, .ots, .ods, .hwp, .dotm, .dotx, .docm, .docx, .DOT, .max, .xml, .txt, .CSV, .uot, .RTF, .pdf, .XLS, .PPT, .stw, .mid, .wma, .flv, .mkv, .mov, .avi, .asf, .mpeg, .vob, .mpg, .wmv, .fla, .swf, .wav, .qcow2, .vdi, .vmdk, .vmx, .gpg, .pot, .pps, .sti, .sxi, .otp, .odp, .wks, .xltx, .xltm, .xlsx, .xlsm, .xlsb, .slk, .xlw, .xlt, .xlm, .xlc, .dif, .stc, .jpg, .tif, .tiff, .NEF, .psd, .cmd, .bat, .class, .jar, .java, .asp, .brd, .sch, .dch, .dip, .vbs, .asm, .pas, .cpp, .sldm, .sldx, .ppsm, .ppsx, .ppam, .docb, .mml, .sxm, .otg, .odg, .uop, .potx, .potm, .pptx, .pptm, .std, .sxd, .aes, .ARC, .PAQ, .tar.bz2, .tbk, .bak, .tar, .tgz, .rar, .zip, .djv, .djvu, .svg, .bmp, .png, .gif, .raw, .cgm, .jpeg, .php, .ldf, .mdf, .ibd, .MYI, .MYD, .frm, .odb, .dbf, .mdb, .sql, .SQLITEDB, .SQLITE3, .asc, .lay6, .lay, .ms11 (Security copy)."We advise the user not to open any malicious files or links, these can be a way to enter the system and encrypt the data on it.


Unfortunately, if your computer has been infected by Virus, then there is no way to decrypt the encrypted files. Even a powerful antivirus scan can't recover the affected files. When this virus gets installed as an executable begins to encrypt the files. It is very tricky and, unfortunately, very harmful. The personal information of the user is locked out by the virus as it changes the format of the data. It then installs some .exe files and makes the user believe that paying ransom is the only way out to recover the files back. A Tor website named Locky Decrypter is where the user is expected to pay. However, there is no guarantee if the files will be decrypted or not, the user may end up in the deeper mess. Locky virus is the newest and the strongest ransomware in market today making even the strongest available antivirus fail. Even if the users are willing to pay a hefty amount of money the chances of recovering files is negligible. The best way to regain files is to see a professional Data Recovery experts. They keep tab on the latest virus/ransomware alerts and develop tools and techniques to effectively recover data for the customers.


Follow the mentioned points to ensure your computer system is safe from any possible ransomware attack:

  • Never open an email attachment from an unknown source.
  • Always update Antivirus programs
  • Ensure security is up to date
  • Always take backup
