The Play ransomware, a threat actor that emerged roughly a year and a half ago, has so far claimed some 300 victims, some of which are critical infrastructure organizations, a new joint advisory published by the FBI, CISA, and the Australian Signals Directorate’s Australian Cyber Security Centre has claimed.

“Since June 2022, the Play (also known as Playcrypt) ransomware group has impacted a wide range of businesses and critical infrastructure in North America, South America, and Europe,” the advisory reads. “As of October 2023, the FBI was aware of approximately 300 affected entities allegedly exploited by the ransomware actors.”
