FBI, CISA Issue Joint Warning on ‘Snatch’ Ransomware-as-a-Service


Cybersecurity advisories from the FBI and the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) are usually a good indication that a particular threat merits priority attention from organizations in the crosshairs.

That would appear to be the case with “Snatch,” a ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) operation that has been active since at least 2018 and is the subject of an alert this week from the two agencies.

Targeting Critical Infrastructure Sectors

The alert warned of the threat actor targeting a wide range of critical infrastructure sectors — including the IT sector, the US defense industrial base, and the food and agriculture vertical — with the most recent attacks happening in June.
