Live demo: Infection and Cleanup from the WannaCry Ransomware

In spring 2017, an extortion Trojan horse sent the IT world into a frenzy: WannaCry spread across the globe in a widespread cyberattack. Over 200,000 computers were infected. The malware, based on the EternalBlue exploit, encrypted documents, images, videos and audio files with a 2048-bit RSA key via the SMBv1 protocol. The files left behind with the extension .WNCRY were then unreadable.

A ransom in the form of Bitcoins should be paid for decryption. Moreover, regardless of the financial damage, it was uncertain whether the data would actually be readable again after the payment. Added to this were the costs of interrupting ongoing operations and the damage to the company’s reputation, which should not be underestimated.
In short, a nightmare for anyone affected.


System respawn after infection in a live demo

Together with Open-E we show in a live demo the process of this IT-supergate, as well as how to effectively counter these malware with JovianDSS. To do this, we intentionally infect the demo systems with the WannaCry network worm and roll it back to its original state.

Questions and answers

What about spare parts after the warranty period?

We are proud of our large inventory and like to shine with it. So if you have an older system that you need a replacement part for, we can very likely supply it. We keep hardware on hand long after the warranty period has expired. This is because we also take care in our product selection to provide support for as long as possible.

I have a more complex request from a customer, can you help?

For sure! This request is tailor-made for our Enterprise Storage Solutions department. Here, solutions are developed on a daily basis and tailored to specific requirements. Our experts will be happy to advise you. If necessary, in a three-way conference with your customer. If necessary, we can even organize a try&buy or a test setup to find out what the problem is. You are also always welcome to attend one of our workshops. Here, the systems are presented in detail and you can ask questions at any time.

Do you also have small and cheap solutions?

Of course, we can also offer you each component separately. Among the ready-made systems, the offer starts with a 4-bay RAID system and a small server, also equipped with four drives.

Who do you supply?

Starline mainly sells to resellers. That is, system houses that install these systems at a customer’s site or resell them in turn.

Does Starline deliver complete solutions?

Starline supplies everything your heart desires in the server and storage sector. If you wish, we can also create a concept for integrating the new system into your existing network and supervise the installation. A detailed documentation after completion of the work is also part of our services.

What makes Starline better than an A-brand?

With Starline, you’re not on the literal hook once you’ve bought something. Starline is an independent medium-sized company that produces servers and storage systems in Germany. Our suppliers – from cables to screws to SSDs – have to undergo internal benchmarking by our technicians and are only included in the program when their performance is beyond doubt. We also rely on cross-manufacturer standards and not on isolated solutions. Moreover, all systems assembled by us are put through their paces before leaving our premises. And last but not least: We look after them whenever you want – for example, even before the purchase with free advice and also afterwards with free technical support.
