Noberus ransomware: evolving tactics.

Show Notes

Brigid O Gorman from Symantec's Threat Hunter team joins Dave to discuss their research on "Noberus Ransomware - Darkside and BlackMatter Successor Continues to Evolve its Tactics." The research states that Noberus ransomware (aka BlackCat, ALPHV) is more dangerous than ever because attackers have been using new tactics, tools, and procedures in recent months.

In the research, Symantec says, "Among some of the more notable developments has been the use of a new version of the Exmatter data exfiltration tool, and the use of Eamfo, information-stealing malware that is designed to steal credentials stored by Veeam backup software." They go over an in-depth look at how its affiliate program operates.
