Diavol_ a New Ransomware_ has Been Linked to a Notorious Cybercrime Gang

According to Fortinet, Wizard Spider – the notorious cybercrime group behind the TrickBot botnet as well as the Ryuk and Conti malware families, may have launched a new ransomware family.

The ransomware, dubbed Diavol, resembles Conti, but the attacks discovered lack some of the strategies previously connected with Wizard Spider.

The ransomware leaves a written ransom note in each folder on infected systems, notifying users that their data has been stolen and threatening public exposure if payment is not made.
