The Conti group's modus operandi, formed of manuals and software, was leaked by a user with the handle "m1Geelka" on 5 August 2021, resulting in the disclosure of how this group carries out its attacks. Interestingly, this modus operandi does not only apply to this group but was observed in many ransom-as-a-service attacks from different operators. This presentation will discuss and map every tactic, technique, and procedure (TTP) using the Mitre Att&ck Framework identified in the leaked manuals. This presentation aims to broaden the defenders' visibility of ransomware-as-a-service attacks and to help to better understand the threat actors' operations within a network.
