Weekly Intelligence Summary 14 August 2020

August 14, 2020

Evil Corp, the Russian-based hacking group known for using the “BitPaymer” ransomware variant and “Dridex” malware, has created “WastedLocker”, a new ransomware variant  that first appeared in May 2020. Since its first appearance, WastedLocker has been a successful tool for extorting millions of dollars from companies in a series of targeted attacks. Recent developments in techniques employed by WastedLocker have demonstrated that it can obfuscate code and abuse the internal working of Windows cache memory to evade detection. It is likely that Evil Corp, emboldened by WastedLocker’s success, will deploy the updated ransomware variant against large organizations in the short-term future (within three months).
