CISA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Treasury, and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) have released a joint Cybersecurity Advisory (CSA) to provide information on the Karakurt data extortion group. Karakurt actors steal data and threaten to auction it off or release it to the public unless they receive payment of the demanded ransom.
CISA, the FBI, Treasury, and FinCEN encourage organizations to review Karakurt Data Extortion Group to learn about Karakurt’s tactics, techniques, and procedures and to apply the recommended mitigations.
