Conti Encryptor is a type of malware, a malicious software designed to exploit and damage computer systems. It can infiltrate systems through various channels such as suspicious downloads, emails, or websites, often without the user's knowledge. Once it has gained access, Conti Encryptor can cause significant harm by stealing personal information, disrupting operations, or holding data hostage for ransom. In January 2023, a new version of ransomware known as LockBit Green was released and promoted by its developers, LockbitSupp, as a significant innovation in the field. The software was touted as a major upgrade, leading to heightened interest and concern within the cybersecurity community. However, this claim was quickly dispelled by security experts who examined the code and functionality of LockBit Green. Upon detailed examination, these security professionals discovered that LockBit Green was not a novel creation but rather a rebranded version of the existing Conti Encryptor. This revelation led to criticisms of LockbitSupp for their misleading promotion and also raised concerns about the prevalence and potential repackaging of established malware threats. Despite the initial hype around LockBit Green, it was ultimately revealed to be nothing more than a repackaged iteration of an already known threat.
