Ransomware as a Service?
Yes, cyber criminals are using this technique because it is easy, and has a good ‘ROI’.
Even cyber criminals are time conscious and use techniques that work. Ransomware will continue to get worse, become more stealthy, and recently the cybersecurity community has continued to see cyber criminals improve their coding instructions making it near impossible to decrypt. The Locky malware that is targeting millions of computers is an example of this crypto-ransomware. Ransomware is not new and has been around for a few years targeting hospitals, local governments, small/large businesses, and even law enforcement agencies. This is a very serious threat to your business and it should be prioritized.
