Ransomware attack on Microsoft and VMWare ESXi servers of Chilean Government Agency

Chile’s national cybersecurity incident response team (CSIRT) informed that a significant ransomware attack targeted the Microsoft and Linux VMware ESXi servers. The malware cyberattack on the Chilean agency began on August 25 and it added file name extension “.crypt” to all files in the department’s system.

The attacker not only took control of the victim’s system, but also left a ransom note with instructions on how to get in touch.

According to CSIRT, the malware used in this particular cyberattack had several functions, all designed to make it more difficult for victims to recover their data. These functions included stealing credentials from web browsers, encrypting removable devices, and evading antivirus detection using execution timeouts.

Chile CSIRT has shared a list of indicators of compromise for files used in the attack. This will help defenders to protect their organizations by knowing what to look for.
