Nemty ransomware operation shuts down public RaaS


Level 16
May 4, 2019
The operators of the Nemty ransomware have announced this week they were shutting down their public Ransomware-as-a-Service operation and opting to go private in order to focus and put more rersources on targeted attacks.
For those unfamiliar with this malware operation, Nemty is a classic RaaS (Ransomware-as-a-Service). It launched in the summer of 2019 and has been heavily advertised on underground Russian-speaking hacking forums.
Users who signed up with the Nemty RaaS were granted access to a web portal where they could create custom versions of the Nemty ransomware.
