The PrintNightmare exploit might be the most appropriately named situation, as it has indeed been a nightmare for Windows users. Now, new groups of ransomware gangs are exploiting PrintNightmare to attack Windows PCs, creating a whole new threat level.
Microsoft released a patch designed to fix the PrintNightmare situation, but unfortunately, it didn’t effectively deal with the problem. Now, Vice Society, another known ransomware gang, is joining in on the attacks.
Vice Society is actively exploiting PrintNightmare (CVE-2021-1675 / CVE-2021-34527) to spread laterally across victim networks. They are a new player in the ransomware space. They have been observed launching big-game hunting and double-extortion attacks https://t.co/hQqRXEMFYc
