LV ransomware has its code structure based on the structure of the REvil Sodinokibi ransomware, which was the tormentor of numerous companies after a wave of attacks in the United States.
After those attacks, the REvil group ceased its activities because of the attention its attacks received from the US government. It is unclear whether the group passed its code structure to GOLD NORTHFIELD, the group controlling the LV ransomware, or whether the group managed to break the malware’s code and adapted it for their group.
The emergence of a group like GOLD NORTHFIELD is concerning because, it shows a much larger organisation than ransomware groups.
Like other ransomware groups, LV ransomware uses the RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) tactic, which is to attract affiliates to do the attacks, thus making the attacks spread easier and wider.
In addition to RaaS the LV ransomware relies on two active sites for leaking the hijacked data, this is a tactic that has become common.
The biggest weapon cybercriminals have is fear and ignorance of alternative ways to recover data, using threats to make the victim see no other way but to pay the ransom. Even though the victim does not have absolute certainty that the files will be returned intact, nor that in the future the data will not be leaked.
In the ransom note the group leaves on the victim’s system, we can notice a line with several threats and a proud tone that without them their data will not be recovered. Remember: they use misinformation as a weapon to generate fear in the victims.
