BitPyLock Ransomware Now Joins the Ranks of Those Threatening to Publish Stolen Data

As I anticipated, it is only getting worse.  Now Lawrence Abrams reports:

A new ransomware called BitPyLock has quickly gone from targeting individual workstations to trying to compromise networks and stealing files before encrypting devices.

BitPyLock was first discovered by MalwareHunterTeam on January 9th, 2020 and has since seen a trickle of new victims daily.

What is interesting is that we can compare the ransom notes of earlier versions with the latest versions to see a clear progression in the types of victims that are targeted.

Elsewhere, Maze Team is back online, and is now also on Tor.
