Ryuk Related Malware

A new malware with strange associations to the Ryuk Ransomware has been discovered to look for and steal confidential financial, military, and law enforcement files.

While Ryuk Ransomware encrypts a victim’s files and then demands a ransom, it is not known for actually stealing files from an infected computer. A new infection discovered today by MalwareHunterTeam, does exactly that by searching for sensitive files and uploading them to a FTP site under the attacker’s control.
