The RansomHouse ransomware gang has attacked Prada Gayoso. Prada Gayoso is a firm that specializes in financial restructuring and works to protect, recover, and enhance company value. It employs 1323 people and is headquartered in Madrid. RansomHouse posted Prada Gayoso to its data leak site on June 16th, claiming to have stolen 0.6TB of data. The ransomware gang has uploaded a sample of stolen data as evidence and claims the deadline depends on Prada Gayoso. RansomHouse, a relatively recent endeavor, specializes in infiltrating networks through vulnerabilities to unlawfully acquire valuable data. While new malicious actors emerge regularly, RansomHouse exhibits distinctive characteristics that diverge from the norms observed by threat researchers. Contrary to its name, RansomHouse deviates from the conventional ransomware approach and operates as a cybercriminal entity engaged in data extortion. Rather than encrypting systems and employing ransomware, RansomHouse bypasses the encryption phase and instead demands payment for the stolen data. Remarkably, the threat actors evade accountability for their actions and attribute the blame to organizations (the victims) for their inadequate security measures. RansomHouse conducts campaigns focused on manually exfiltrating data without employing encryption modules, with the primary objective of achieving financial gains. Their methodology is straightforward, as they allocate resources to exfiltrating data and researching vulnerabilities, resulting in attacks that are less intricate compared to traditional asset encryption methods. In instances where a victim refuses to pay the ransom, RansomHouse resorts to public shaming by publishing a portion of the victim's data on their website. This strategy intends to negatively impact targeted organizations by drawing attention from customers and shareholders. RansomHouse's website provides URLs to media posts that showcase victims currently experiencing extortion, highlighting the secondary aspect of publicity as a method of extortion. Should victims persist in refusing to pay, RansomHouse proceeds to offer the stolen data for sale on the dark web. If no interested buyers are found, they proceed to publish all the data on their Tor site.
