Hsinchu, Taiwan – May 18, 2021 – The ransomware Sodin is first found in 2019. However, several big companies are infected with Sodin one by one in these days. For example, according to Kaspersky’s comments about REvil, the cybercriminal group, “REvil”, found the WebLogic vulnerability of Apple/Quanta and thus inject the “Sodin” ransomware, and steal the new Apple products designs. This is the targeted ransomware case. Also, the Asteelflash Group, the subsidiary of ASE group, the largest IC package company in the world, is attacked by this ransomware. The accumulated disasters have reached a big number. It is also a little bit weird that most victims are in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and South Korea.

The Oracle WebLogic Server RCE Vulnerability is assigned as CVE-2019-2725. Lionic already studied this CVE and have designed virus signature in local and cloud signature. Any products which licensed Lionic’s Anti-Virus technology can protect against the Sodin ransomware.

The Pico-UTM 100, the security network bridge made by Lionic, has these anti-virus signatures, of course. And Sodin is not the only ransomware. There are many other ransomware targeted the enterprises. So far Lionic has collected more than 30 million of ransomware instances. At least our cloud-based anti-virus database has them all. If those big companies can deploy large volume of Pico-UTM 100 in their LAN in advance, we think their impact will be minimized, or even no impact.
