LockBit Ransomware Gang New Version “Green”,  Targets Cloud-Based Services

The ransomware gang “LockBit” released a new version of ransomware called LockBit Green, designed to target cloud-based services. LockBit Green is just one of the three versions of popular ransomware released by the gang. Their modified VMware ESXI ransomware variant is an enterprise-class, type-1 hypervisor developed by VMware for deploying and serving virtual machines.

“Since virtualization is the foundation of any large-scale deployment of computing and storage resources, it is not surprising that ransomware actors have now expanded their targets to include virtualization servers: with a single attack it is possible to shut down entire data centers and affect virtualized storage that is shared among workloads, with devastating effects,” reported VMware.

The list of ransomware that can target ESXi includes Babuk, AvosLocker, BlackCat, Hive, Luna, REvil, HelloKitty, Black Basta, DarkSide/BlackMatter, Defray777/RansomEXX, GwisinLocker, Cheerscrypt, RedAlert, Conti, and of course LockBit.
