WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A week after notorious Russia-based extortion gang Conti was humiliated when reams of data about their internal chats were leaked online, a second group – Trickbot – also appears to have been hit by a leak.
Detailed information about this second ransomware gang has allegedly surfaced online, experts said late Thursday, further evidence groups with suspected links to Russia have been uncovered in recent days.
The identification of details of alleged gang members circulated by a Twitter account dubbed “TrickbotLeaks” began leaking around the internet on Thursday.
The account was blocked and Reuters could not immediately verify the information’s authenticity, but experts said the details released were consistent with their understanding of the group.
“It overlaps — for the most part — with our research,” said Vitali Kremez, chief executive of Florida-based cybersecurity firm AdvIntel.
Kremez, who says he is in contact with a Ukrainian researcher allegedly responsible for the earlier leak of Conti correspondence, said the drumbeat of the revelations appears to have been triggered in one way or another by the Russian invasion of Ukraine may be.
In the area of Russian cybercrime, “all gloves are off,” Kremez said.
