Threat Intel Header 1

In August, the summer slowdown of ransomware activity finally came to fruition — sort of. Ransomware is down 18.41% from July. 

But: Corvus still observed 390 new ransomware victims posted to leak sites in August, making this the sixth month in a row with a YoY increase in industry- wide ransomware victims.

And ransomware gangs are back from summer vacation. While CL0P’s MOVEit exploit kept summer numbers significantly higher than average, many key players slowed down in June and July. But vacation is over — LockBit doubled their activity from July to August.

Tips Header 1

From Global Head of Risk Advisory, Lauren Winchester and CISO, Jason Rebholz

🚩 Cybercriminals want to exploit your clients’ file transfer software. Two of the most consequential zero-day attacks this year, GoAnywhere and MOVEit, capitalized on the software’s easy and direct access to gigabytes of data and downstream customers. Here’s what you need to know:

  • The ROI is hard to beat. Cl0P is targeting file transfer software because it provides a direct route to sensitive data, versus hacking into an org’s environment and circumventing several stopgaps. Plus, downstream risk opens the door to even more victims. 
  • The MOVEit exploit broke records. It’s the most consequential file transfer attack ever recorded. Since the initial exploit over Memorial Day weekend, CL0P has listed 263 victims on their leaksite. 
  • It’s not the end of the world. Yes, the zero-day attacks were bad. But there are preventative measures businesses can take to safeguard their data: patch management, encryption, and user best practices (to name a few).
