The ransomware group threatens to make over 53GB of files public in 72 hours.
The infamous Pay2Key ransomware group posted a screenshot on Twitter of what appear to be private files obtained from Habana Labs, a chip startup acquired by Intel. They also posted an .onion darknet address, with file names, data and documents that appear to belong to the chipmaker.
The group threatened that Intel and Habana Labs have 72 hours to prevent further leaks, including Active Directory information, passwords, and the whole data found on the company’s server.
The security research firm Check Point linked the group to Iranian residents and reported that Pay2Key developed a new type of ransomware that has first been seen last October. In this period, the malware has successfully affected three Israeli and at least one European company. Even worse, it’s reported that the ransomware group conducts “double extortion”, also threatening the victims to releasing their files publicly as a way to pressure them into paying the ransom, which is between 7 and 9 Bitcoins.
