How MedusaLocker Operates

MedusaLocker ransomware gang typically relies on Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) vulnerabilities to access victims’ networks. From there, MedusaLocker encrypts the stolen data, leaving a ransomware note in each encrypted file. The note directs victims to a specific Bitcoin wallet address. MedusaLocker operates as a Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) model. They are best known for targeting education, chemical, construction, and manufacturing sectors. They primarily target organizations in the US, Singapore, and the UK.

The Impact of Ransomware Attacks

Ransomware attacks typically involve threat groups encrypting an organization’s data and demanding a ransom for the decryption key. Cybercriminals typically target organizations that will suffer greatly from stolen data or downtime, and that can afford to pay ransoms.

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.
