Ransomware Decryption Intelligence


Community Feature - @BushidoToken

A Curated Intelligence staff member - BushidoToken - recently discussed the role of ransomware decryption intelligence as a means of combating the current ransomware epidemic. By reverse engineering the encryption implementation utilised by a ransomware variant, researchers can exploit a cryptographic flaw to decrypt ransomware. 


Five scenarios of how ransomware can be decrypted are outlined in the blog. Followed by real world scenarios, rebranded ransomware examples, how to and how not to share intelligence, as well as some conclusions and multiple calls to action.
