#537 Samsam may signal a new trend of targeted ransomware
Samsam, unlike more conventional ransomware, is not delivered through drive-by-downloads or emails. Instead, the attackers behind Samsam use tools such as Jexboss to identify unpatched servers running Red Hat’s JBoss enterprise products. Once the attackers have successfully gained entry into one of these servers by exploiting vulnerabilities in JBoss, they use other freely available tools and scripts to collect credentials and gather information on networked computers. Then they deploy their ransomware to encrypt files on these systems before demanding a ransom.
