"Lucky" is a malicious software (malware) that has been causing significant damage to computer systems by exploiting vulnerabilities and causing disruptions. The malware was discovered by security expert Bruce Schneier, who termed the discovery as "really, really lucky". This malware can infect systems through suspicious downloads, emails, or websites, often without the user's knowledge. Once inside, it can steal personal information, disrupt operations, or even hold data hostage for ransom. In some instances, vulnerable drivers were caught before they could be exploited, which helped in mitigating the damage caused by this malware. The malware has been used multiple times by ransomware operators to disable endpoint protection products. In April 2023, it was reported that a tool called "AuKill" had used a vulnerable version of a driver for Microsoft’s Process Explorer utility in attempts to deploy Medusa Locker and LockBit ransomware. Despite these attacks, there have been instances where victims have been lucky enough to avoid major damage. For instance, in July, Sophos behavioral rules were triggered by activity from a driver for another company’s security product, helping to prevent further exploitation. Despite the harm caused by Lucky, not all online entities with the name "Lucky" are harmful. For instance, Lucky Block is a reputable online casino known for instant withdrawals, boasting 4,000 games, a robust sportsbook, and a native crypto token. However, it's important to distinguish between these legitimate services and scams such as the "Lucky Buy Market Scam Store" at luckybuymarket.com. As always, users should remain vigilant about online security, avoiding suspicious downloads, emails, and websites to protect their systems from malware like Lucky.
