FBI, CISA Ransomware Alert Warns of Vice Society Targeting Education Orgs - Kristal Kuykendall, Campus Technology

A joint Cybersecurity Advisory released by the FBI, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center warns that Vice Society threat actors are disproportionately targeting the education sector as recently as this month. Such so-called #StopRansomware advisories describe observed tactics, techniques, and procedures as well as indicators of compromise to help organizations protect themselves against the newest ransomware threats. "The FBI, CISA, and the MS-ISAC anticipate attacks may increase as the 2022/2023 school year begins and criminal ransomware groups perceive opportunities for successful attacks," the advisory states.
