Weekly Intelligence Summary 15th Oct

The “FIN12” threat group has been attracting attention for deploying ransomware in a quarter of the time typically needed, making it one of the fastest ransomware groups active today. Unlike other groups, FIN12 has not fully embraced the double-extortion technique, relying mainly on encryption. This approach enables the group to focus on improving attack efficiency, and to avoid problems with managing data-leak websites. FIN12 has primarily targeted the healthcare sector; the elevated risk posed by blocking access to healthcare systems likely explains the group’s success in receiving ransom payments. Such attacks have allegedly resulted in deaths. Regardless of the consequences, FIN12 is expected to wage more attacks, and probably become more efficient and destructive.
