Nefilim ransomware first appeared in March 2020 and since then there have been numerous records of attacks by this group. The main targets of the group are companies with a turnover of over $1 billion.
This type of strategy is called “Big Game Hunting”, some ransomware is developed specifically to target these companies, but that doesn’t take away the fact that smaller companies will also be attacked by them.
The Nefilim ransomware is famous for using exposed RDP ports, this is the operating system’s own port for remote access. The group takes advantage of this port to access the system.
After breaking into the system, the ransomware starts moving laterally in search of better credentials to access servers with more valuable files. Upon finding these files, they are copied and extracted to the criminals’ server, and after extraction the original data is encrypted.
This data is used for double extortion, this tactic involves copying the files and extracting them and encrypting the original ones stored. The encryption will paralyze the operation of the company, which is the first tactic implemented, if this does not make the company pay the ransom, the stolen data is released on the group’s leak site.
