Iranian Hackers Deploy New Ransomware Against Israeli Firms


Security researchers have discovered an Iran-linked APT group carrying out a new chain of ransomware attacks using a new strain of malware against Israeli organizations.

Researchers at Check Point found a ransomware strain called Moneybird that is reminiscent of the Iranian Agrius group’s previous campaigns.

Agrius gained notoriety for targeting Israel-based entities with wiper variants, masking the intrusions as ransomware attacks to confuse defenders.
