Stellar received requests from over two dozen customers with specific request for recovering lost data from WannaCry affected drives. The requests were received at several data recovery laboratories locations.
“We are already working on five specific WannaCry cases at our Delhi-NCR, Chandigarh, Kolkata and Kochi locations. Our data recovery lab services are subscribed by customers who would like professional expert to examine the affected drives and recover lost data,” Sunil Chandna, CEO, Stellar Data Recovery, said.
Stellar’s data recovery experts analysed drives infected with the ransomware and, after careful evaluation, they were able to identify a possible weakness. The research and development team then updated their software “Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery” to exploit the vulnerability. Data can be recovered either using “Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery Free Edition” or by subscribing to the company’s professional lab services in India and Europe.
“Since we have published an update on our website yesterday, Stellar Phoenix data recovery software was downloaded by over 600 users. ‘Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery Software for Windows’ has a FREE edition that can help customers recover data at zero cost,” Chandna added.
