REvil ransomware operators have been on their toes and leaking the data of many well-known and well-established organizations around the globe. For instance, recently they leaked highly confidential documents and data of Harvest Sherwood Food Distributors and Fraser, Wheeler & Courtney Law Firm.
Just like other ransomware operators they have made it difficult for the organizations to protect their goodwill in the industry. From their on-going ransomware attacks, money seems to be the main reason or motivation behind the execution of such cyberattacks. Recently, they released a small press release on their website, as shown below-:
In this press release, they mentioned the doubling the ransom amount for the Sherwood Food & Harvest Distributors to get their data protected and not to be leaked online. Along with that, they also doubled the ransom amount for the Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks in order to get their goodwill been maintained in the industry. From the lot, the most interesting point of note is the threatening warning given to one of the powerful men in the world Mr. Donald Trump, who is currently the President of the United States.
The Cyble Research Team has verified and reported this press release, which includes a bunch of information. Below are the snapshots of the updated data leaks of the companies mentioned in the press release-:
