The ransomware threat landscape is consistently active and evolving, as this week’s installment of the ‘Weekly Ransomware Wrap-Up’ demonstrates.

Cybersecurity researchers find significant links between three malicious threat groups: Karakurt, Conti, and Diavol. Given recent revelations about the Conti ransomware group, this sort of consolidation is of no surprise.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) warns the United States’ agriculture sector to anticipate increased incidents of ransomware during this year’s planting and harvesting seasons. Ransomware attacks against food suppliers will surely have far-reaching ramifications on prices and supply-chain movement.

Notorious ransomware group, Yanluowang, had its ransomware code cracked by threat researchers, who released a free decryption key.

Global manufacturer and seller of wind turbines, Nordex Group, is experiencing disruptions due to an attack by Conti ransomware group. This is the second breach of a wind energy organization in the past few months.

After months of inactivity and the arrest of multiple members, researchers found threat group REvil is restarting its operations with the return of its Tor site.
