Radware recently published a cybersecurity alert, warning users were once again being targeted by DDoS extortionists for a second time by a global ransom DDoS campaign that initially started in August 2020. Organizations received new letter that said, "Maybe you forgot us, but we didn’t forget you. We were busy working on more profitable projects, but now we are back.”
- Organizations that received these new letters did not respond/pay the ransom demand in the middle of 2020
- Companies that received these new letters were not revealed to the media in August/September of 2020, so only the original threat actor would know these companies
- Radware is confident that the same threat actors that initiated this campaign in 2020 are still active today.
