Ransomware such as LockBit 2.0 can be removed by recovering files from a previous backup or restore point, however, this process may not restore already compromised data.
Managed Service Providers use various tools and take proactive action to prevent ransomware from infecting computer devices. Management tools such as N-Central by N-able will monitor all devices across a network and has its own integrated EDR and automatic rollback methods. In the meantime, premium anti-virus programs such as SentinelOne can help prevent these types of attacks against businesses.
Nonetheless, if you’re infected it is advised to never pay the ransom as it is advised by the FBI and other intelligence organisations. As this would only encourage cybercriminals to launch additional attacks against you or other potential targets.
Another way of getting rid of ransomware such as LockBit 2.0 is by using a free decryptor software available online, however such decryptors are not always reliable and may not work against LockBit 2.0 at present.
The best form of action to thwart such attacks is always being watchful and educating yourself about emerging ransomware attacks.
