CYBERWARZONE – The Karakurt data extortion gang has announced on their Telegram channel that they are seeking for new members. They state that they have been silent for more than a year, but that they are now actively seeking for new members to join the Karakurt hacking team which is known for hacking companies and then demanding ransom. The ransom from their previous attacks ranged from 25000 to 1.3 million dollar in Bitcoin.
Karakurt isn’t a typical ransomware gang, in their attacks, they didn’t take the effort to encrypt data, instead, they would steal the data, and demand ransom from the victim.
In their recruitment post they call for employees which don’t like their current employer, they call for pentesters and financial experts.
