Settling Exfiltration Ransoms
In addition to extorting payment for a decryption tool, modern variants of ransomware like Ryuk, Maze, Netwalker, and Egregor commonly try to exfiltrate files. TAs can then require a separate payment in exchange for not divulging this information or selling it. Sadly, there exists no method to prove that stolen files have been totally deleted by the hacker. In fact, in many instances the TA has limited say over data custody. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not free you from the necessity of seeking the advice of legal counsel, performing an audit on which files were taken, and carrying out the mandated notifications to impacted entities. In almost all cases, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
