Clop

Malware Profile Updated 3 days ago

Preview STIX
Clop is a malicious software (malware) designed to exploit and damage computer systems. It infiltrates systems through suspicious downloads, emails, or websites, often without the user's knowledge. Once inside, it can steal personal information, disrupt operations, or hold data hostage for ransom. The Clop ransomware group has been responsible for several significant cyber attacks, including exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities in SysAid, MOVEit, and GoAnywhere MFT file transfer solutions. These exploits have allowed the group to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data and systems. In 2023, Clop was identified as the third most active ransomware, accounting for a significant portion of all ransomware attacks alongside Lockbit and ALPHV groups. One of the major incidents involved the breach of the file transfer system MoveIt, through which the group accessed customer data. This tactic of threatening to release stolen data to public forums if ransoms are not paid is a common strategy employed by various ransomware groups, including Maze, NetWalker, and Clop. The Clop group has also targeted large institutions and federal agencies. They managed to steal data from major North Carolina hospitals and gained access to the email addresses of approximately 632,000 US federal employees. These incidents highlight the potential severity of Clop attacks and underscore the need for robust cybersecurity measures to prevent such breaches.
