New RAT Malware being used by Cuba Ransomware Hackers

Palo Alto Networks’ Unit 42 threat intelligence team is tracking the double extortion ransomware group under the constellation-themed moniker Tropical Scorpius. The group has been linked to previously undocumented tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) including a new remote access trojan called ROMCOM RAT on compromised systems. Of the 60 victims listed on its data leak site, 40 are located in the U.S., indicating a not as global distribution of targeted organizations as other ransomware gangs as other gangs. The latest updates observed by Unit 42 in May 2022 has to do with the defense evasion tactics employed prior to the deployment of the ransomware to fly under the radar.
