Hacker's Playbook Updated With Methods for Petya.A (Bad Rabbit) Ransomware Attack
SafeBreach Labs has updated the Hacker's Playbook™ with simulations for a new ransomware attack, based on Petya.A and dubbed Bad Rabbit.
Additionally, thanks to the depth of the Hacker's Playbook™, a portion of this multi-stage attack campaign has already been simulated. As always, SafeBreach Labs will continue to monitor the situation, and develop new simulations as necessary.
This attack has targeted businesses and infrastructure in Russia and Ukraine according to CERT-UA, and shows early signs in Turkey and Germany, encrypting machines and demanding payment in bitcoin for decryption. However, SafeBreach recommends all industries and businesses simulate this attack to identify whether or not they can be compromised, and then take action to prevent this ransomware campaign from spreading outside the currently affected regions.
To assess security control effectiveness against techniques involved in this ransomware attack, the SafeBreach Breach and Attack Simulation Platform specifically tests the following endpoint and network security controls:
Newly Added Playbook Methods
Playbook #1401: Local installation of ransomware
Playbook #1402 - Network transfer of ransomware
Already Existing Playbook Method
Playbook #794: Run MimiKatz on Host
Playbook #1220: Fileless (using PowerShell) MimiKatz Injection
The SafeBreach Hacker's Playbook™ of breach methods simulates these breach scenarios, and thousands more, without impacting users or infrastructure. Breach methods are constantly updated by SafeBreach Labs, our team of offensive security researchers, to help keep customers ahead of attacks.
