Threat Update 51 – LockBit and Insider Threats for Hire

1 min read
Published August 16, 2021
Last updated October 21, 2021

Organizations face threats from all sides – both external attackers trying to get in, and internal “trusted” employees going rogue.

It was only a matter of time before these two forces combined. The attackers and associates behind the LockBit 2.0 ransomware are skipping the old tried-and-true infiltration vectors like phishing emails, and simply offering cash for disgruntled insiders to provide credentials that will let attackers in through VPN, RDP, or to corporate email addresses.

Join Kilian and Kyle Roth from the Varonis Incident Response team as they break down some of the details on how LockBit works, provide suggestions on how to spot signs of rogue behavior, and ways organizations can reduce the “blast radius” of a compromised account.
