LockBit ransomware mulls triple extortion following DDoS attack
While leaks of data belonging to Entrust have been temporarily halted by the DDoS attack, LockBit’s public-facing figure LockBitSupp said that the operation has reemerged with a larger and more robust infrastructure that now includes DDoS among its extortion arsenal, which only previously included data encryption and leaks. “I am looking for dudosers [DDoSers] in the team, most likely now we will attack targets and provide triple extortion, encryption + date leak + dudos, because I have felt the power of dudos and how it invigorates and makes life more interesting,” wrote LockBitSupp in a forum post. LockBitSupp added that the ransomware operation has already begun implementing unique links in victims’ ransom notes in an effort to avert potential DDoS attacks, while more mirrors and duplicate servers, as well as increased stolen data availability are also being planned.
