Babuk ransomware's full source code leaked on hacker forum
Quote:A threat actor has leaked the complete source code for the Babuk ransomware on a Russian-speaking hacking forum.

Babuk Locker, also known internally as Babyk, is a ransomware operation launched at the beginning of 2021 when it began targeting businesses to steal and encrypt their data in double-extortion attacks.

After attacking the Washinton DC's Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) and feeling the heat from U.S. law enforcement, the ransomware gang claimed to have shut down their operation.

However, members of the same group splintered off to relaunch the ransomware as Babuk V2, where they continue to encrypt victims to this day.

Source code released on a hacking forum
As first noticed by security research group vx-underground, an alleged member of the Babuk group released the full source code for their ransomware on a popular Russian-speaking hacking forum.

This member claimed to be suffering from terminal cancer and decided to release the source code while they have to "live like a human."
