Vice Society is making headlines since its initiation after making continuous high-profile targeted attacks on the education and healthcare sectors.
As of May 2023, the group has emerged as one of the most prevalent Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) gangs. It employs a double extortion scheme, which means it first steals data from victim networks before encrypting while simultaneously threatening to publish the information on the dark web unless a ransom is paid.
