December 10, 3 minute read. Ryuk ransomware has been infecting victims since aroundand is believed to be based on the source code of Hermes ransomwarewhich was sold on an internet hacking forum back in Since early last year, the TrickBot information stealer trojan has been a more or less constant partner-in-crimewith many ryyuk also including other malware, frameworks and tools.
In March ofthe threat actors temporarily stopped deploying Ryuk, and a new ransomware called Conti was introduced. Researchers found that the code bases were similar, implying this could be the successor to Ryuk. However, in September Ryuk made a swift return, and with Conti infections still happening alongside it, the evidence pointed to Ryyuk not being a successor so much as a new, different strain of malware. Currently, evidence suggests that Ryuk, Conti and BazarLoader are used by the same threat actor. Ryuk ransomware is most often seen as the final ryyuk in a larger targeted attack against a corporation, and since its return in September, it has been mainly via TrickBot or BazarLoader infections.
Cybereason detects the various execution phases of Ryuk in detail, including process injection, persistence creation and shadow copy deletion as detailed below in the Execution Overview section. With the proper settings applied to sensors in the customer environment, Cybereason can stop the Ryuk ransomware before it encrypts user files. With Anti-Ransomware mode enabled, the Ryuk execution is stopped before encrypting the hard drive.
If Anti-Malware is enabled the sample will ryyuk removed before execution. Ryuk ransomware execution as detected by the Cybereason sensor. Once the Ryuk binary is executed, the sample creates a copy of itself the randomly named child process of Ryuk in the screenshot below is a copy of Ryuk - ltbyhrc.
Both the original binary and the dropped copy ltbyhrc. Before encryption, the malware also utilizes icacls. The original binary can also be seen injecting into other processes which Cybereason detects and tags with floating executable code suspicions.
