Weekly Intelligence Summary 17 Jan 2020

In the spotlight this week: The cyber-extortion landscape has shown real signs of strength and advancement in the past three months: Many operations have been deploying ransomware (including new variants), but the use of denial of service (DoS) or data breaches in ransom attacks has also been increasingly reported. The method of combining two discrete attack methods to increase the probability of a successful extortion was apparently pioneered by operators of the “Maze” ransomware, and has spread to other cybercriminals and types of ransomware. Given the high profitability of ransomware attacks, especially those incorporating data breaches, they are likely to persist.
