FBI Warns of PYSA Ransomware Attacks on Education

The FBI released a TLP:WHITE Flash alerting of an increased awareness of PYSA ransomware attacks on educational institutions in the US and the UK. In the report, they show examples of the characteristics of the compromise and domains associated.

Furthermore, the FBI urges victims to not pay the ransomware demands as the money will only continue to fund further ransomware attacks. Victims are also urged to report any attack to the Internet Crime Complaint Center for further investigation.

Listed in the alert are suggestions of mitigation techniques if you feel you may be experiencing a cybersecurity event. Remember that reporting and working with authorities will help provide them with continuing knowledge of threat actors. This knowledge helps create more sophisticated methods of tracking and catching cyber criminals.
