Ransomware Gangs Create Websites To Recruit Members

Share post:

After ransomware gangs were forced to promote their services by alternative methods, since ransomware themes were banned by some cybercrime forums, two gangs now advertise features of their encryption tools on their sites to recruit a new group of hackers.

The first ransomware gang, LockBit, announced a new affiliate recruiting session when announcing a new major version for their tool and its significant improvement in encryption speed.

Another ransomware gang, Himalaya, also advertises with a 70% commission for affiliates and an “already configured and compiled FUD [Fully UnDetectable]” file-encrypting malware.
