Across 49 analyzed CryptoWall 3.0 campaigns, over 400,000 infection attempts were logged. CryptoWall 3.0 is commonly delivered via phishing e-mail, but it is also quite commonly delivered as a payload of an exploit kit. Specifically, CryptoWall 3.0 seems to be the most commonly delivered payload by the Angler EK; the most active, sophisticated exploit kit found in-the-wild today. CryptoWall 3.0 ransom payments accounted for an estimated total of more than $60 million in revenue for an Angler EK group exposed by Cisco’s Talos Group earlier this year.
