Ragnar Locker ransomware – what you need to know

The State of Security

What is this Ragnar Locker thing I’ve heard about?

Ragnar Locker is a family of ransomware, which first came to prominence in early 2020 when it became notorious for hitting large organisations, attempting to extort large amounts of cryptocurrency from its victims.

So just your bunch of cybercriminals then?

Yes, although on their underground website, where they leak files stolen from their corporate victims, they attempt to portray themselves rather differently.

In the Ragnar Locker gang’s “About us” section they make the rather unconvincing claim that they “don’t pursuit aim to make huge damage to anyone’s business”, whilst admitting that “if it would be necessary, no doubt we will do what we promise and the consequences will be disastrous.”
