It has been a pretty quiet week with few alleged attacks against corporate victims and mostly new variants of existing ransomware released.

The most interesting news is the Conti ransomware that appears to share the same code as Ryuk and could possibly be its successor. Ryuk has significantly decreased in activity over the past couple of months, while Conti has seen an increase.

Only time will tell, but Conti is definitely one that we need to keep an eye on.
