Over the last several days, we’ve seen media outlets publish faulty blockchain analysis related to the movement of funds by #DarkSide, the #ransomware group behind the Colonial Pipeline hack.
Blockchain analysis firms erroneously identified DarkSide’s movement of funds as a simple peel chain, without identifying the mixer involved. They incorrectly traced the funds to exchanges & other services based on that conclusion.
A peel chain is a transaction pattern commonly seen in blockchain analysis, in which funds appear to move through several intermediate addresses. Peel chains occur naturally and aren’t inherently obfuscatory or evidence of money laundering.

During a virtual meeting with the Economic Club of New York, Director Christopher Wray stressed how public-private #partnerships help the #FBI combat criminal and national security cyber threats like ransomware and intellectual property theft. Image
Wray: Today’s #cyber threats are more pervasive ... than ever before. ... We’re investigating over a hundred #ransomware strains today, and their impact has been growing. ... But if there’s one thing the FBI understands, it’s taking down criminal enterprises.
Wray: Our strategy centers on prevention and disruption—hitting hackers before they attack or before their intrusions can cause major harm. … Actors, infrastructure, and money are all important individually, but we achieve the biggest impact when we disrupt all three together.

🧵The latest Threat Landscape Update from @RelativityHQ’s Calder7 security team focuses on Evil Corp and its new Macaw Locker #ransomware that is being used to evade U.S. sanctions which previously prevented victims from paying ransoms. (1/7) #CyberSecurity #Legaltech
Background: Evil Corp, also known as Indrik Spider, Gold Drake, and Dridex gang, is an international cybercrime network that has stolen over $100 million USD in over 40 countries through a variety of attacks on banking institutions (2/7)
The group also dabbles in #ransomare, including their notorious #BitPaymer operation which utilized Dridex malware to attack compromised networks and subsequently led to sanctions from the US Treasury in 2019:… (3/7)

#Proxyshell in #tortillas recipe #ransomware
We have seen a new actor named tortillas abusing proxyshell to run ransomware.
The ransomware maybe born from the leaked #Babuk code.
The attack is originated by the IP: 185.219.52.]229
@58_158_177_102 @sugimu_sec Image
Chain: proxyshell -> webshell (a lot) -> certutil -> download and execute the payload.
The encrypted files has .babyk extension and end with "choung dong looks like hot dog!!" string that is typical from #Babuk, but the ransom note are different.
So we guess they used Babuk code. ImageImage

A thread on what caught my eye from the @WhiteHouse's Fact Sheet on 'Ongoing Public U.S. Efforts to Counter #Ransomware'.

#InThaCybers #CyberDiplomacy
The second paras describe the national security threat posed by ransomware and the global nature of that threat. No surprises here.
Counter-ransomware policy = Multi-stakeholder by design.

The state must work with industry and other states because of inherent technological and economic realities.

Plus, it takes a network to take down a network like a transnational ransomware gang.

Okay so I've had a chance to go through the Cth government's Ransomware Action Plan.

Here's a thread comprising some of my thoughts thereon.

#InThaCybers #Ransomware
I applaud the Cth for finally delivering this document, given the severity of the national security threat posed by the ransomware ecosystem.

A threat which the Minister for Home Affairs, @karenandrewsmp, highlights in her foreword.
The Action Plan rightly acknowledges the nature of counter-ransomware policy as multi-stakeholder by design.

That is, the state working with domestic partners and overseas partners.

#Ciberataque El Banco Bicentenario, en Venezuela, confirmó ésta noche que fue objeto de un ataque remoto a su plataforma informática con el objetivo de ingresar a la misma y alterar la data bancaria. El intento fue fallido aunque afectó la continuidad de los servicios desde ayer.
De acuerdo con la información compartida por el banco (registros de un sistema de protección de intrusos) fue un ataque DDoS, con miles de peticiones de acceso (de 13 mil a 15 mil) por cada atacante, con direcciones IP de Colombia en su mayoría. Eso causa un "atasco de tráfico".
El ataque de "denegación de servicio distribuida" o #DDoS (siglas en inglés) tuvo como objetivo los puertos 80 y 443 que son los que permiten la navegación web. Además de Colombia los ataques (según las direcciones IP) provenían de Angola, Brasil, Canadá, Chile, Ecuador y Perú.

LATEST NEWS: Both @CISAgov and @FBI just released an advisory on #Conti #ransomware, which they’ve recently observed being used to attack US and international organizations.

Learn more about Conti’s attack chain and tactics here 👉

#Conti operators use several methods to gain initial access like spear phishing and exploiting public-facing applications, followed by the use of Cobalt Strike. We investigated how Conti #ransomware operators used Cobalt Strike to launch attacks:

Aside from Cobalt Strike, #Rclone is another legitimate tool abused by Conti operators in their previous campaigns. We discuss some of the most commonly abused legitimate tools here 👉

#Sabotaje Ataque contra plataforma del Banco de Venezuela se originó en EEUU. La vicepresidenta ejecutiva de la República, Delcy Rodríguez, anunció que la intrusión informática quedó registrada en el Sistema de Prevención de Intrusos o Intrusion Prevention System #IPS.
Explicó a través de la televisora estatal que el 90% de las operaciones realizadas en el banco desde el 15SEP ya se han restaurado. “Se procesan unas 5 mil operaciones por segundo”, dijo. También indicó que se ha restablecido una comisión para "blindar las plataformas del país".
Recordemos que el comunicado de la entidad financiera del VIE17SEP informó sobre un "ataque terrorista”: "un hackeo masivo que pretendía desaparecer y alterar la data bancaria". Es decir, #ransomware o secuestro de datos (la devolución pasa por el pago de un "rescate").

LATEST NEWS: Cring #ransomware recently made headlines due to a recent attack that exploited a bug in the 11-year-old version of the Adobe ColdFusion 9 software. Follow this thread and let’s look at the techniques typically wielded by this ransomware.

👇 👇 👇 [1/5] Image
[2/5] #Cring ransomware gains initial access through unsecure remote desktop protocol (RDP) or through unpatched vulnerabilities. Image
[3/5] The threat also abuses tools such as #Mimikatz for credential access and Cobalt Strike for lateral movement. More details on how these tools are abused for ransomware attacks:

Una #segundalectura" del comunicado del #bancodevenezuela, que el viernes 17SEP informó sobre un "ataque terrorista", apunta a revelar un acto de #ransomware o secuestro de datos. El texto dice que fue "un hackeo masivo que pretendía desaparecer y alterar la data bancaria".
El término es la combinación de "Ransom" (rescate) y "software" (aplicación informática): se trata del uso de programas para tomar control de datos esenciales para la operación de un negocio. La devolución pasa por el pago de un "rescate", una perfecta analogía con un secuestro.
Las siguientes líneas del comunicado ratifican la hipótesis del #ransomware ya que ofrece una garantía pública de la integridad de la información en las cuentas de los clientes, tanto con respecto al registro de todas las operaciones como al resguardo de la data bancaria.

🧵The latest Threat Landscape Update from @RelativityHQ’s Calder7 security team details a particularly concerning new trend in #ransomware, which combines Ransomware-as-a-Service (RAAS) with employee-led Insider Threats. #cybersecurity #infosec #hackers #SundayReads (1/7)
RAAS has been around since early 2020 and has quickly become the leading vector for deploying #ransomware. The newest iteration of it is enticing employees to intentionally deploy #ransomware w/i their own org. A particularly nasty case of insider threat (2/7)
Reported by @briankrebs, threat actors trying this technique are using the #Demonware strain and are targeting networks of interest in the U.S., Canada, Australia, U.K., and for RDP, VPN, - corporate email access specifically (3/7)

[1/n] We’re monitoring developments on a new piece of proof-of-concept #ransomware called #Chaos. It’s purportedly a .NET version of #Ryuk, but our analysis shows that its routines are different from Ryuk’s. Image
[2/n] Earlier versions of #Chaos were actually destructive #trojans that overwrote rather than encrypted files, which meant that victims had no way of restoring their files to their original state. Image
[3/n] The third version of #Chaos was traditional #ransomware, having the ability to encrypt files via RSA/AES and also providing a decrypter. With this version, the creator asked for donations to support the ongoing development of Chaos. Image

THREAD: Based on our blockchain analysis, we can confirm reports speculating that DarkSide #ransomware group has rebranded to BlackMatter. This is part of a trend in which ransomware groups shut down & reemerge with new names, often after law enforcement actions or media scrutiny
Chainalysis was able to confirm the financial connection between DarkSide and BlackMatter in late July '21 a few days before security researchers speculated there was a connection based on similarities w/ their encryption algorithms, decryptors, and more:…
Sometimes following the money can provide an early indicator about a ransomware group’s revitalized operations. In this case, financial connections were made on the blockchain before any attacks were made public on BlackMatter’s blog…
