Ukraine Arrests 6 Clop Ransomware Operation Suspects

Police in Ukraine says officers conducted 21 searches in the capital of Kyiv and the surrounding region, searching defendants’ homes and cars, and seizing computer equipment, cars and about $185,000 in cash.

As part of those attacks, police say the Clop operation used a variety of tools, including pushing “FlawedAmmyy” RAT. Interpol did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This is especially relevant as presidents Biden and Putin discuss the state of cyberthreats emanating from Russia, including the ransomware threats.

The arrests made by Ukraine are a reminder that the country is a strong partner for the U.S.  Big game hunting refers to targeting bigger victims and seeking larger ransom payouts, including charging twice – once for a decryptor and again for a promise to delete stolen data.

Clop ransomware has been active since February 2019 and targets large organizations for big game hunting,” says Kim Bromley, a senior cyber threat intelligence analyst at threat intelligence firm Digital Shadows.
