Vulnerabilities and Impact

INC Ransom is a group that conducts ransomware attacks on businesses, particularly targeting sectors like law firms and healthcare services where data privacy is crucial. Affiliates are key players in their operations, carrying out attacks and deploying ransomware once initial access is gained. They have benefited from law enforcement efforts to disrupt other ransomware groups and have targeted various sectors, including healthcare and local government.

Their recent attack on West Idaho Orthopedics highlights the serious consequences such attacks can have on patient care, potentially causing delays in procedures and compromising sensitive data. This incident underscores the ongoing threat of cybercrime in the healthcare sector, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing cybersecurity to protect patient information and ensure continuous care.


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.
