Following a recent surge of attacks involving Avaddon ransomware, the United States and Australian cyber-security agencies have released alerts regarding the ransomware group’s tactics, techniques, and procedures, the Record reports. As described in a brief released by the FBI, the group has been observed compromising poorly secured Remote Desktop (RDP) and corporate Virtual Private Network (VPN) portals.

While Avaddon has also bragged about their ability to execute DDoS attacks, the FBI has not identified any Avaddon incident involving DDoS.
