Rig Exploit Kit via the EiTest delivers CryptoShield ransomware
- Today I captured traffic from the Rig Exploit Kit (EK) which delivered CryptoShield ransomware via the EITEST campaign.
- Files on the infected host were encrypted and the file extensions were changed to .WCT.CRYPTOSHIELD .
- The Rig exploit kit is making use of DNS Shadowing as explained in a sucuri.net blog post Website Malware – Evolution of Pseudo Darkleech.
I have added a zipped pcap file for your analysis. The password for the zipped pcap is infected all lowercase.
