Dark web forums found offering Cerber ‘ransomware as a service’
The pro-Eastern European ransomware Cerber has been spotted on dark web Russian forums offering ransomware as a service, according to the cyber intelligence firm Sensecy.
Malwarebytes Labs conducted an analysis of the Cerber ransomware and discovered several customizable functionality settings, according to a blog posted by Malwarebytes programmer Hasherezade. The ransomware does not load if it detects that the user is located in certain “blacklisted” countries, or contains specific languages, file names or directories.
