Evil Corp Targets US Health Sector
Evil Corp is a Russian-based cybercrime group that has been active in various forms since 2007. This year, Evil Corp has been quite busy and been in the headlines for using LockBit ransomware, attacking Japanese technology company Olympus, and attacking school districts.
Last week, the Health Sector Cybersecurity Coordination Center (HC3) issued a threat profile about Evil Corp warning that the prolific group could threaten healthcare cybersecurity. The State Department and FBI have a standing offer of $5 million for information leading to the arrest and conviction of their leader, Maksim Yakubets, which is the largest reward for a cybercriminal ever offered.
