As more ransomware samples become socialized, the realization that threat actors associated with ransomware groups inevitably take TTPs from past efforts and implement some of the technical and operational aspects into new projects through re-use and re-tooling. This presentation will cover a ransomware campaign that was analyzed in 2020 and how we utilized simple to use techniques and services to identify interesting aspects that made this campaign standout from others. Participants will be able to help reduce analysis time through exposure and familiarization of the techniques and services presented in this talk with the goal helping augment mission readiness and awareness of existing ransomware threats of all participants.
