Kaspersky Lab said: "We have been proactively detecting the original vector attack since it began on the morning of October 24. Overall, there are nearly 200 targets, according to the KSN statistics", Kaspersky Lab said.
"ESET's telemetry has detected hundreds of occurrences of Diskcoder.D", it reported, adding: "Most of the detections are in Russian Federation and Ukraine, however, also there are reports of computers in Turkey, Bulgaria and other countries are affected".
Eset, a Slovakian cybersecurity company, said that initial analysis suggested the malware was "Diskcoder.D" - otherwise known as "Petya".
Once a computer is infected, the crooks behind Bad Rabbit lockdown computers and demand 0.05 Bitcoin (about $275) from victims within 41 hours in exchange for decryption of the data and restoring access to their machine.
Bad Rabbit ransomware is a modified version of the NotPetya malware, the outbreak of which was recorded in July. This again has led Kaspersky to believe it is the same group that had developed Petya are also behind Bad Rabbit.
"According to our data, most of the victims targeted by these attacks are located in Russian Federation". Serper, who works at Cybereason, explains that all you need to do is create two files (c:\windows\infpub.dat and c:\windows\cscc.dat) and remove all permissions from them.
The malware also appears to be using an encryption scheme that prevented analysts from deciphering the malicious code. Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai reporting in Motherboard: "Once [the malwae] infects a computer, Bad Rabbit displays a message in red letters on a black background, an aesthetic used in the massive NotPetya ransomware outbreak. WannaCry set the bar for how devastating ransomware can be; Bad Rabbit won't be the last iteration of malware to try and emulate its "success".
According to Wisniewski, partners can play a key role in helping customers during such ransomware attacks.
The Bad Rabbit ransomware spreads between computers and networks in a "worm-like fashion". BadRabbit is being spread through a fake Adobe Flash Player installer and using a Windows flaw dubbed Eternal Blue. Even more, they continue to rely on the legacy AV products which these types of malware evade so easily, ' Rowan adds. If any employee has the ability to download and install software then they will have the ability to install Bad Rabbit on your network.
