Weekly Intelligence Summary 27 November

November 27, 2020

The operators of the “RagnarLocker” ransomware began an advertising campaign on Facebook to further extort the victim of one of their recent attacks. This was in addition to posting the details of the attack to their dark website, “Ragnar_Locker Leaks”. Using ransomware extortion websites has become commonplace, but this bold approach of using social media advertisements to publicize a ransomware attack represents a shift in extortion tactics for a ransomware group. Among the competitive ransomware market, criminal groups have attempted to differentiate themselves. Most have developed new methods to coerce their victims, contributing to the unprecedented advancements in ransomware activity observed throughout 2020. These new extortion tactics indicate that innovation in this space is unlikely to cease as 2021 approaches.
