The use of improperly secured Remote Desktop Protocol connections on Windows machines has been found to be the biggest entry point for ransomware, according to a quarterly evaluation by Coveware, a company that is intimately involved in handling such attacks.
The man called the invisible god of networks aka Fxmsp by the security firm Group-IB compromised more than 135 company networks and sold access to them in 44 countries over three-plus years, raking in at least $1.5 million, the firm says in a detailed document about him. The name is taken from a quote in an ad posted by a user Lampeduza to promote Fxmsp's services: "You will become the invisible god of networks."
More than three-quarters of the Windows ransomware cases across the 2017 to 2019 period studied by Mandiant Intelligence, a division of security firm FireEye, occurred after working hours.
