The World’s 1st Data Recovery Case From WannaCryRansomware

May 27, 2017 - (Newswire)

WannaCryRansomware is considered one of the most widely spread and massive cyberattacks in recent times. It has affected more than 200,000 systems spread across more than 150 countries. The first global case of data recovery from WannaCryRansomware occurred on May 22, 2017. Recently, Wondershare Data Recovery received a review from one of its real-time users whose system was also affected by WannaCryRansomware. After using the data recovery software, the user was able to retrieve the affected files.

Instead of paying the ransom, Aadharsh took the assistance of the Wondershare Data Recovery tool and was successfully able to recover the data that was affected by WannaCryRansomware. The case happened on May 22, 2017, just a few days after WannaCry’s first incident was encountered. This is considered a breakthrough, as it is the world’s first data recovery case from the massively spread WannaCryRansomware. The virus has globally affected thousands of computers corrupting the crucial data files of its victims.

Aadharsh has given a 5-star rating to the tool, with his review: “I have used this app… so fast recovery and I safe from WannaCry and Ransomware virus problem.” The recent review is considered a game-changer regarding the virus’ impact, making it the first successful data recovery case from WannaCryRansomware.

Wondershare Data Recovery 6.0.0

The first case of WannaCryRansomware was discovered on May 12, 2017, and ever since it has affected thousands of computers the world over. Initially, it was propagated as an email attachment. Since it can spread through LAN, it affected the connected network of plenty of organizations in more than 150 countries. The virus exploits the SMB (Server Message Block) vulnerability of a system. This was made possible by Eternal Blue, a hacking weapon developed by the NSA.

Windows released a patch file (MS-17-010) to fix an issue related to their operating systems on March 2017. WannaCry exploits the vulnerability of the systems with an un-patched Windows. Users who have been affected by the virus receive a ransom message on the screen — though it has been discovered that even after paying thousands of dollars as ransom, not even a single case of file decryption has been found.

The world’s first recovery case was recently made by a user of Wondershare Data Recovery. The new version (6.0.0) of the Data Recovery software works on every major operating system of Windows that has been affected by WannaCry. The virus doesn’t corrupt the original files. Instead, it makes a shadow copy of the data files and encrypts them while deleting the original content.

The Data Recovery software designed by Wondershare has an advanced scan-algorithm that retrieves the original file from the system. Additionally, it has an easy-to-use interface, allowing its users to recover their files with a single click. Different types of storage devices with the file system NTFS, FAT16, FAT32, and exFAT are supported by the software. Since it supports an extensive range of recoverable formats, one can retrieve almost every kind of data (like photos, music, documents, videos, and more) with Wondershare Data Recovery. It is one of the fastest and safest ways to recover the deleted files, affected by WannaCryRansomware.

Measures to avoid the Ransomware virus

Globally, more than 200,000 computers have been affected by the WannaCryRansomware. One can protect a Windows system after performing a basic security check. Since WannaCry exploits the vulnerability of the system, it can be fixed with an update. A Windows system with an unpatched file is likely to be affected by WannaCry.

To update Windows, a user can visit Control Panel and choose to perform an automatic update. This will let Windows install the patch file on the system, increasing its security. Furthermore, clicking on unknown links and opening email attachments from unreliable sources should also be avoided.

Install the new version of Wondershare Data Recovery 6.0.0 on Windows systems. As the result of a data recovery process largely depends on time, the software can be used readily if it is already installed. Since the Data Recovery software by Wondershare is the first one to recover files from the WannaCry attack, it should be installed on every Windows system. Additionally, Windows users should also take an extensive backup of data stored on system’s hard disk. This can be done by taking the assistance of a data backup and restore software, like dr.fone Data Backup & Restore tool.

Lastly, an anti-virus should be installed on Windows systems. This will increase the overall security level of a system, preventing it from the WannaCry attack.

More about WannaCry Virus

The virus is officially named as WannaCry 0r 2.0, making it the second version of the virus. It has a predecessor (Ransomware WeCry) that demanded 0.1 Bitcoin as a ransom. The creators of the virus took the assistance of Eternal Blue to exploit the vulnerability on Windows systems. It was originally leaked by a group known as Shadow Brokers.

WannaCry demands Bitcoins of worth $300 to decrypt the files. Though, it has been discovered that even after receiving thousands of dollars, no files have been decrypted by the hackers. This makes it a matter of grave concern for organizations like FedEx, Telefónica, and more who have been affected by the virus. More than 150 countries have been affected by the virus, making it one of the worst cyber attacks in the recent times.

Wondershare Data Recovery tool has come out to become the first application that can recover data files deleted by the Ransomware. A recent experience of one of its users has depicted the efficiency of this remarkable recovery software that uses an advanced scan-algorithm to retrieve the deleted data files. With more than 5 million users worldwide, it is definitely a reliable solution for the systems that have been affected by the WannaCryRansomware.
