Rig Exploit Kit via pseudoDarkleech delivers Cerber Ransomware
- Today I captured traffic from the latest version of Cerber ransomware. The ransomware was delivered via the pseudoDarkleech campaign with use of the Rig Exploit Kit.
- The injection method was an Iframe, as mentioned in a post on SANS Internet Storm Center forum Change in patterns for the pseudoDarkleech campaign.
- It appears the pseudoDarkleech campaign has switched from CrypMic ransomware to Cerber ransomware.
I have added a zipped pcap file for your analysis. The password is the usual used by malware researchers. If you do not know it please email me.
