What is BadRabbit Ransomware?

Posted by Gary Fleming on Oct 25, 2017 3:34:07 PM

The latest strain of ransomware “Bad Rabbit” began spreading across Russia and Ukraine yesterday, with 3 Russian websites, a Ukraine airport and underground system been hit. Since then, there have been various reports of “Bad Rabbit” infections in Turkey, Bulgaria, Japan, Germany, Poland, South Korea and the United States.  The U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) which is run by the Department of Homeland Security, issued an alert about the ransomware worm but didn’t say whether any infections had been detected in the U.S or not. They have said it "discourages individuals and organisations from paying the ransom, as this does not guarantee that access will be restored".

How it works?

The Bad Rabbit ransomware enters networks when a user on your network runs a phony Adobe Flash Player installer posted on a hacked website, with the initial infections coming from a Russian news website. Other reports said websites based in Ireland, Denmark and Turkey have also been corrupted with the fake Flash installer and have been spreading the malware.

Once “Bad Rabbit” Ransomware has infected its first machine within a network, it then uses an opensource tool to find any login credentials stored on the machine, so it can spread to other machines. There are also some conflicting reports that BadRabbit uses the NSA’s EternalBlue tool, used by both NotPetya and the WannaCry Ransomware worm that spread in May, to spread through local networks.

“Get Rich or Die Trying”: Lone Ranger Cyber Criminal responsible for over 4,000 attacks.

Posted by Gary Fleming on Aug 21, 2017 5:30:34 PM


A large spree of Cyber-attacks which aims to infect networks, steal information and commit fraud has impacted over 4,000 organisations globally in the past 4 months.  Some of the companies hit include leading international names in the banking, manufacturing, construction and oil and gas industries across Germany, Croatia, Abu Dhabi, Egypt, Kuwait and Dubai.

Attacks of this nature and scale tend to be accredited to cyber-criminal gangs, many of which are state funded with the aim of destabilising economies. However, in this case, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Researchers have discovered that these attacks are the work of a Nigerian man in his 20s who works on his own near the Nigerian capital. Funnily, on his personal Facebook page he uses the phrase, “Get Rich or Die Trying”.

Who is the most at risk of falling victim to phishing attacks, hacks and identity thefts? You might be very surprised.

Posted by Gary Fleming on May 3, 2017 1:23:02 PM

You’ve tech-savvy, you use strong passwords, change them regularly and you would never fall for a phishing attack or an identity theft, right?                                                         

Think again, according to new study carried out by CBT Nuggets, self-proclaimed tech-savvy people are 18% more likely to fall prey to identity theft. Also, highly educated people are as likely to be hacked as those without an advanced degree, meaning there is no correlation between formal education level and cybersecurity acumen. Almost one quarter of those with a degree, master’s degree or PhD were victim of an identity theft.

The study showed lots of surprising statistics but more worryingly, 40% of people surveyed didn’t care, were too lazy or don’t want to be inconvenienced by online security requirements. In fact, only 4% of people follow “all the basic security recommendations”.
