CISA Issues Warning Regarding Recent MedusaLocker Ransomware Activity

In order to draw attention to current MedusaLocker ransomware activity, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Department of Treasury, and the Financial Crime Enforcement Network (FinCEN) have issued a combined advisory.
