Sophos Cyber Firm Impersonated by Fake Ransomware Attack

A new ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) called SophosEncrypt has been discovered, impersonating the well-known cybersecurity vendor Sophos. Initially thought to be part of a red team exercise by Sophos, the ransomware was confirmed to be unrelated to the company.

Sophos’ X-Ops team is currently investigating the launch of SophosEncrypt. ID Ransomware has received one submission from infected victims, indicating that the RaaS operation is active.

The ransomware encryptor, written in Rust and named ‘sophos_encrypt’ internally, prompts the affiliate to enter a token associated with the victim to verify its validity. When a valid token is entered, the encryptor requests additional information from the affiliate to be used in the encryption process.
