FBI: Crippling 'Dual Ransomware Attacks' on the Rise

Dark Reading

Once they compromise an victim with an initial ransomware attack, threat actors are ready to deploy a secondary attack with a different strain, which could leave even more damage.

The FBI has issued a warning about a rising ransomware trend in which separate attacks are conducted just hours or days apart — otherwise known as "dual ransomware attacks." 

"Ransomware attacks against the same victim occurring within 10 days, or less, of each other were considered dual ransomware attacks," the bureau explained in a Private Industry Notification released last week. "The majority of dual ransomware attacks occurred within 48 hours of each other."
