Dead ransomware HelloKitty reanimates in rebrand and releases CD Projekt and Cisco data | #ransomware | #cybercrime

HelloKitty is back. The dreaded ransomware, which died in late 2023 after the developer leaked both the builder and the source code on a hacker forum, is back with a new name and a new data leak website. 

According to BleepingComputer, both the ransomware and the dark web portal are now called HelloGookie, most likely after the developer and operator, Gookee/kapuchin0. For the uninitiated, the original HelloKitty ransomware was developed and maintained by a hacker with the alias Guki.
