BlackCat (aka AlphaVM, AlphaV) is a newly established RaaS (Ransomware as a Service) with payloads written in Rust. While BlackCat is not the first ransomware written in the Rust language, it joins a small sliver of the malware landscape making use of this popular cross-platform language. First appearing in late November, BlackCat has reportedly been attacking targets in multiple countries, including Australia, India and the U.S, and demanding ransoms in the region of $400,000 to $3,000,000 in Bitcoin or Monero.
