Kaspersky may be a company that is under some degree of pressure at the moment. But that hasn’t stopped them from uncovering new threats. Kaspersky threat researchers today published a blog detailing the BlackCat ransomware group and their efforts to target industrial companies. In addition, Kaspersky has found links between the teams of BlackCat, ALPHV, Noberus and BlackMatter. These teams have used a data exfiltration cool called Fendr and ExMatter to target oil, gas, mining, construction and industrial sites.
Saryu Nayyar, CEO and Founder, Gurucul had this comment:
There seems to be a never ending stream of these groups going after the targets of their choice. That means that you need to be on point with your security strategy along with your incident response should it come to that.
