Lumu Technologies, a cybersecurity company recognized for its Continuous Compromise Assessment model that enables organizations to measure security compromises in real-time, has announced the detection of an imminent threat of a wave of cyberattacks orchestrated by the Copode 1.0 group in Brazil.
According to the analysis, 116 vulnerable instances have been detected in the country, making it the most vulnerable in the world, surpassing France with 61 and the United States with 58 in second and third places.
Lumu warns that Brazilian organizations need to urgently verify if they are among the affected since, according to German Patiño, VP of Sales, Lumu Technologies Latin America, this group of cybercriminals stands out for its high capacity to compromise organizations, infect computers on the network and camouflage itself to remain unnoticed within.
In addition, other ransomware groups and cybercriminals may take advantage of the same Lockbit 3.0 code – a variation of the LockBit Black code leaks released in September 2022.
It increases the potential for the attack to spread, as the intruders can move laterally and employ advanced techniques.
The security recommendations listed by experts include system updates (patching), identifying whether the network was already compromised and validating if the organization’s assets are already in contact with indicators of compromise.Click below to share this article
