Cloud Security is Unable to Stop the Sneaky Attacks of Blackcat Ransomware

Attacks of Blackcat Ransomware

Attacks of Blackcat RansomwareAttacks of BlackCat ransomware emerged to fight while employed entry vector is a genuine threat. 

Alerts were issued regarding the activities of threat groups known as BlackCat, Noberus, and AlphaV. According to the agency, attacks by the Blackcat Ransomware gang have been used to target at least 60 organizations around the world. The coding method is different for BlackCat ransomware. BlackCat attacked several prominent victims and demanded millions of dollars to pay the ransom. In February, the group complained about the flight service provider’s attack on Swissport. A month ago she listed the German oil companies Oiltanking and Mabanaft among the victims.

What makes this attack of Blackcat Ransomware unique is that it was developed using the Rust ransomware programming language. Rust is considered a more secure programming language that offers improved performance and reliable concurrency. These are all desirable qualities from a developer’s point of view, and the ransomware crew is no exception. The purpose of such attacks is to steal and encrypt victim data as quickly as possible without being detected, so secure code that provides high performance is suitable for ransomware campaigns.

BlackCat ransomware often targets industrial systems, and security researchers have identified links to BlackMatter ransomware gangs. BlackMatter announced last winter that it would be shut down  due to pressure from law enforcement agencies, but such announcements are often “again” rather than true “goodbye.”

Researchers believe that Attacks of Blackcat Ransomware is made up of former members of the BlackMatter crew, with the addition of other BlackCat ransomware service partners.

 

What is rust? 

Mozilla contributed to building Rust as a personal project in 2006, and the Foundation officially sponsored it three years later. In 2021, the Rust Foundation was founded and continued to develop by a group of Microsoft, Google, Mozilla, and Amazon Web Services.

Fast-forwarding to this day, Rust has been named the “Most Popular” programming language by developer polls for the sixth consecutive year. So it’s no wonder BlackMatter ransomware gangs choose to encode malware into Rust. Surprisingly, it took a very long time for such malware to appear.
