The Xinglocker ransomware has been carrying out attacks since it first appeared around May 2021. It targets companies that use the Windows operating system.
After finding some access to the victim’s system, either through email campaigns, malicious links or human inadvertence, the malware starts acting on the data.
After encryption, Xinglocker generates a text file “READ_ME.txt”. In it, there is the detailed step-by-step for the victim to contact the cybercriminals and pay the ransom amount for the return of their data.
The group responsible for Xinglocker attacks has been attacking companies around the world, maintaining its anonymity thanks to the Ransomware as a Service (RaaS) strategy.
At first, the Xinglocker ransomware was thought to be a new version, or a variant of the MountLocker and AstroLocker ransomware.
However, over the course of the attacks, studies showed that a slightly different system was being applied. Evidence of similar senders to the same onion address was highlighted and revealed a new franking system. That in turn was based on another similar group, Mountlocker.
It is critical to emphasise that ransomware organisations are looking for innovative methods to put in place in their affiliate programmes and RaaS operations.
