NB65 ransomware emerged after the leak of the Conti ransomware source code and emerged to be its antagonist. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine showed that there is a new form of warfare, one that goes far beyond military might.
The cyber front of the attacks proved extremely effective, hackers were called to the frontlines on both sides, and in the face of this, some groups have positioned themselves pro and against Russia.
Among the groups that are pro-Russia is the Conti ransomware, this positioning led to a stampede of several members who did not agree with such positioning. This departure of members resulted in leaks of internal members’ conversations and the leak of the malware’s source code.
And this leak gave ammunition to hacker teams that are against Russia, groups led by the notorious Anonymous.
From that scenario came the NB65 ransomware, the malware was developed based on the first leak of Conti’s source code. NB65 made the proper algorithm changes so that no Conti decryption key would work on your files.
The group began an assault on Russian state-owned companies such as the All-Russian State Company for Broadcasting Radio and Television (VGTRK) and the Russian Space Agency ‘Roscosmos’. Both companies have had files leaked that contained confidential information.
The attacks that were initially all focused on state-owned companies have now turned to private companies, the group justifies its attacks by the vast majority of the Russian population agreeing with the invasion of Ukraine.
