The exploits used in the blackteened attack were discovered by the company and posted to the Github repository.
The team behind the blackhole malware wrote that it has “done the hard work” to find the exploits.
It said it’s working with the Blackhole security team to “identify the exploit source and develop an update for it.”
The exploit used in Blackteen attacks can be downloaded for free from the Github repositories of the companies owners and is included in the Blackteened Premium Edition.
The Blackteens ransomware, which is known for its persistent infection, was developed by Blackhole.
The company said in a statement to Reuters that it was investigating how it got its hands on the exploit.
“This exploit is a result of a joint effort between Blackhole, the blackthed company and our partners,” Blackhole said.
“We’re aware of the exploit, and are in the process of assessing its impact.”
The company also said it has updated its whitelisting policy for the Blackthed malware and it is no longer allowing the use of the malware.
