The Conti Ransomware Attack on Bank Indonesia

The Conti ransomware gang has attacked the Bank Indonesia. The bank disclosed on January 20th, 2022, that a ransomware attack hit its networks the month before but that its operations had not been disrupted. Attackers reportedly stole “non-critical data” belonging to Bank Indonesia employees before deploying ransomware payloads on over a dozen systems on the bank’s network. The bank reportedly mitigated the incident before public services were impacted.

The Conti ransomware gang claimed responsibility for the attack, leaking some files allegedly stolen from Bank Indonesia. The group claims to have stolen 13.88GB of data from the organization. Conti never leaked the stolen data, suggesting Bank Indonesia paid the ransom.

Conti's Background and Impact

Conti has been active since September 2020 and may have spawned the more recent Royal ransomware strain. Conti is an advanced RaaS (Ransomware-as-a-Service) platform with considerable security tool evasion capabilities. Conti is noted for some very high-profile attacks against the governments of Costa Rica and Peru, as well as critical infrastructure providers.

Conti was one of the most active attack groups going into 2022, but in May, the group began shutting down its attack infrastructure and was assumed to be rebranding or splintering into smaller RaaS operations. Conti ransomware has netted hundreds of millions of dollars in ransom payments and leveled a $40 million ransom demand against a Florida school district.

Recent Ransomware Attacks

The Recent Ransomware Attacks (RRA) site acts as a watchtower, providing you with near real-time ransomware tracking of attacks, groups and their victims. Given threat actors’ overarching, lucrative success so far, ransomware attacks have become the most ubiquitous, and financially and informationally impactful cyber threat to businesses and organizations today.

The site’s data is generated based on hosting choices of real-world threat actors, and a handful of other trackers. While sanitization efforts have been taken, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of the data. Attack updates will be made as source data is reported by reputable sources. By viewing, accessing, or using RRA you acknowledge you are doing so at your own risk.
