Nowadays, there has been a rapid increase in the rate of ransomware attacks. The Advanced Intel group had detected that Ryuk ransomware operators had used pentester toolkit for targeted cybercrime operations, and they have succeeded in their criminal activities.

The threat actors of Ryuk ransomware have used pure malware such as BazarLoader, BazarBackdoor, and Ryuk. Many intermediate steps are present in the kill chain, which involves all kinds of commercial or open-source tools.

The operators of the Ryuk ransomware group included 15 different steps from the initial infection point to the distribution of ransomware payloads upon a victim’s network.

The security experts have said that if any victim or users need optimum protection, then they should use the virtual home offices, especially those operating in the C-suite, to reconsider segmenting home networks.
