In this new blog entry, we will analyze the features and describe the operation of a new ransomware called Ekans, initially known as Snake, which has a very specific design, aimed at infecting and blocking Industrial Control Systems (ICS).
Exfiltration of data, or information leakage, poses a threat to all companies throughout the world. It is important to know the possible ways information can get out to control them and avoid a loss of information in our organisation. Since in industry the most important factor is availability, this threat has to be put into perspective.
Sodinokibi uses the RaaS (Ramsonware as a Service) model, which favours its rapid spread. In this article we present some lines of action that should be followed in the case of having been a victim of this sophisticated malware or if it is suspected that it could have infected our systems.
In the last few days there have been various reports, both nationally and internationally, of a ransomware campaign called NetWalker, also known as Mailto or Koko, which appears to target healthcare centers, taking advantage of the current state of alarm declared as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ransomware attacks have experienced a great evolution from its beginnings, being able to identify a great amount of different families at the present time, many of them are highly sophisticated, with high propagation and persistence. In this blog we explain what is Sodinokibi and how it works.
In this article, we review virtual private networks, or VPNs, one of the most important measures for teleworking, as they allow a connection to the organization through secure networks, and the advantages they offer, as well as additional security recommendations to help ensure cyber security.
The union of the IT and OT worlds is unstoppable, which means that the cybersecurity strategy, traditionally focused on the IT field, must now include aspects related to the industrial world. Having a good cybersecurity strategy is essential for IC systems to survive in this new era.
Trips across the ocean have changed over the years with the arrival of the industrial revolution and information technology, among other things, making technology its best ally, both to automate their navigation and to control their location from land-based stations. However, this total dependence on technology brings with it important security issues that need to be addressed with the importance they deserve.
