According to VX-Underground BlackCat ransomware gang, also known as AlphV, threatens to leak victim data and delete decryption keys if any threat intelligence work is carried out against them, independently or on behalf of any company.

If you ask how they will understand this, it is actually quite simple. Many security companies and threat intelligence teams follow the traces of command and control servers to find out who is behind the malware, and sometimes they have to intervene. Attackers watching server logs can be aware of these attempts easily.

Even though the ransomware attackers are pretty badass in normal shards, the AlphV BlackCat gang seems to have made it even worse. The first ransomware written in Rust programming language

known as BlackCat has been in the news in the cyber community since its first appearance on December 9th. It is not known how effective the gang’s threat series will be, but it doesn’t seem like they will attempt such a thing. Because we do not personally think that they will destroy the “profitable business models” they have adopted to make money by destroying their unlocking keys.
