New ransomware service (RaaS) programs were discovered during this month’s threat alerts. DarkSide and Ravil were both claimed to be successors by one of them. Colonial has been attacked by these two notorious ransomware groups. In the past, Pipeline and Kaseya. If you’ve been attacked by a major group, you should go offline. Several months.

Apparently they are looking for penetration testers with experience in Windows and Linux systems as well as Windows and Linux systems. Employees sell their visits to the provider for a certain percentage of profit when they first visit.

According to Proofpoint, ransomware groups increasingly purchase access from independent cybercriminals who infiltrate their main targets and provide them with an entry point to steal and encrypt data. To gain illicit profits by selling data.
