A new ransomware operation has been launched under the name ‘Lilith,’ and it has already posted its first victim on a data leak site created to support double-extortion attacks.
Lilith is a C/C++ console-based ransomware discovered by JAMESWT and designed for 64-bit versions of Windows. Like most ransomware operations launching today, Lilith performs double-extortions attacks, which is when the threat actors steal data before encrypting devices.
According to a report by researchers at Cyble who analyzed Lilith, the new family doesn’t introduce any novelties. However, it’s one of the latest threats to watch out for, along with RedAlert and 0mega that also recently emerged.
