Rain's weekly updates #28

Antony Semaan

Rain Networks was awarded MVP Partner of the Year at ESET’s 2019 North America Partner Conference.

Congrats to NeuShield for receiving the Gold Winner honors as “Best Ransomware Protection Solution” in the Info Security PG’s 2019 Global Excellence Awards.

Targeted users are receiving phishing emails pretending to be a payment notice. In the email is an image of Mario and extracts, from some of the pixels, a PowerShell command that downloads Gandcrab Ransomware.

Hackers used Valentine’s Day as a way to distribute Gandcrab ransomware in a romance-themed email.

At least 126 MSP’s forgot to update a plugin to their software back in 2017, and now hackers are gaining access to those accounts and deploying Gandcrab ransomware on their workstations.

A new report states that 2018 was the second-most active year for data breaches with more than 6,500 reported.
