Description(Bleeping Computer) LockBit ransomware takes as little as five minutes to deploy the encryption routine on target systems once it lands on the victim network.

Joining the ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) business in September 2019, LockBit is atypical in that it’s driven by automated processes for quick spreading across the victim network, identifying valuable systems and locking them up.

LockBit attacks leave few traces for forensic analysis as the malware loads into the system memory, with logs and supporting files removed upon execution.
