Community Feature - @cPeterr

In this blog post, Curated Intelligence member Chuong Dong shared his findings after reverse engineering the PLAY ransomware's code obfuscation and encryption features.

Chuong's analysis highlighted that PLAY uses a hybrid-cryptography scheme of RSA and AES to encrypt files. The ransomware executable is also highly obfuscated with various different anti-analysis tricks that are rarely seen in malware families that came before it.
