Seeking Advice: Ransomware Attack and Solutions for Legacy Systems

I am reaching out for guidance on a critical issue one of our clients is currently facing. They have fallen victim to a ransomware attack, specifically impacted by the 'Hhuy virus' from the STOP/DJVU ransomware family, identifiable by the '.HHUY' extension on encrypted files.

The client's infrastructure includes computers running on Windows 7 and servers on Windows Server 2008 & 2012. Unfortunately, Intersept X, which we are considering as a potential security solution, seems to have compatibility issues with Windows 7.

We've managed to install a trial version of Intersept X on some of the compatible machines, as part of our proposal to integrate Sophos solutions (including Firewall and Intersept X) into their security framework.

Here are my key inquiries:

  1. Efficacy of Intersept X: Is Intersept X an effective tool to neutralize such viruses, particularly for systems compromised by the Hhuy ransomware?
  2. Legacy System Solutions: What are the recommended security measures or solutions for the servers running on outdated Windows versions (2008 & 2012) which are crucial for our client's operations?
  3. Data Recovery: The client has lost nearly 20 years' worth of data due to encryption by the ransomware. Are there any viable decryption methods or data recovery solutions available for this specific ransomware family?

Our goal is to reassure the client of their security and data integrity by adopting Sophos solutions. Any insights, experiences, or recommendations in dealing with similar scenarios would be immensely valuable.

Thank you in advance for your help and advice.
