Bad Rabbit primarily spreads through compromised websites known as watering holes. These hacked websites feature a pop-up window (below) that tells visitors that they need to update Adobe Flash Player.
However, this update message is fake and clicking either option, “Remind Later” or “Install,” launches the malware installer. From there, the malware has been shown to spread system-wide from the initial point of compromise, encrypting files and demanding a ransom to unlock them (below).
At this time, it’s unclear if this rapid ability to spread systemwide is due to the use of tools like EternalBlue or just the result of poor password hygiene in the affected systems.
While most reported cases are in Russia and Ukraine, there is the potential for this malware to spread globally. Early indications highlight the ability of most antivirus software to detect and block Bad Rabbit.
