March 16, SecurityWeek – (International) Radamant C&C server manipulated to spew decryption keys. Security researchers from InfoArmor reported that a flaw in Radamant ransomware’s command and control (C&C) server could potentially allow researchers to decrypt victims’ files without requiring user interaction by registering the infected machine within the malware control center via a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) POST request. Researchers reported the request needs to contain public and private encryption keys, as well as a unique identifier of the bot to bypass the filter and avoid additional vulnerability exploits.
