Flash Talk: GandCrab Ransomware

Flash Talks is an exclusive Flashpoint speaker series during which our analysts share insights gleaned from global cyber and physical landscapes.



Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) is a profitable business for cybercriminals, arming novices and less sophisticated cybercriminals with the capability to launch and reap the rewards of a ransomware attack. 

Join Senior Malware Researcher Christopher Elisan as he discusses how a threat actor recruited partners to spread the GandCrab ransomware in exchange for a percentage of the profits. Christopher analyzes the recruiting process, the ransomware deployment technology, the network infrastructure, and the ransomware itself to provide an understanding of how the campaign was conducted from start to finish.
