Exposing the Internet-Connected Infrastructure of the REvil Ransomware Gang – An In-Depth OSINT Analysis

Dear blog readers,

In this post I’ve decided to do an in-depth OSINT analysis on the recently busted REvil ransomware gang and decided to elaborate more and emphasize on the key fact in specific how come that a single ransomware group with several publicly accessible and easy to shut down C&C (command and control) server domains including several randomly generated Dark Web Onion URLs could easily result in millions of damage and who really remembers a situation when getting paid for getting hacked including the basic principle that you should never interact with cybercriminals but instead should passively and proactively monitor them could result in today’s modern and unspoken ransomware growth epidemic and the rise of wrong buzz words as for instance ransomware-as-a-corporation where you basically have the bad guys obtain initial access to an organization’s network and then hold its information encryption leading us to the logical conclusion who on Earth would pay millions of dollars to avoid possible bad reputation damage including to fuel growth into a rogue and fraudulent scheme as as for instance the encryption of sensitive company information and leaking it to the public in exchange for financial rewards.

Sample REvil ransomware gang publicly accessible C&C (command and control) servers include:

hxxp://decoder[.]re
