What Is Ransomware And The List Of Ransomware Attacks In 2020?

Swami Nathan Fri, 05/22/2020 - 17:19

Ever wondered what all the fuss around ransomware attacks is about? You heard about it in the office, or you read it in the news. You might have a pop-up right now on your computer screen that warns you of a ransomware infection. Okay, if you are interested to learn anything that you need to know about ransomware, you’ve come to the right place.

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a kind of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system or computer files with a demand of paying out a sum of money. Most variants of ransomware encrypt the files on the affected device, rendering them unavailable and demand a ransom payment in order to restore access to them.

Ransomware code is often not sophisticated, but it doesn’t have to be, because unlike other forms of conventional malware, it doesn’t generally need to stay undetected for a long time to achieve its target. This relative ease of implementation versus high-profit potential, attracts both sophisticated actors of cybercrime and novice actors to run ransomware campaigns.

How do we receive Ransomware?

Most ransomware is delivered via email which appears to be legitimate, encouraging you to click links or download an attachment which delivers the malicious software. Ransomware is also delivered on compromised or malicious websites, via drive-by-download attacks. Some ransomware attacks were also sent using messaging from social media.

Generic ransomware is rarely targeted individually, instead a “shotgun” approach – where attackers acquire email lists or compromised websites and blast out ransomware. Given the number of attackers out there, it’ll definitely be by another attacker if you get hit several times.

Whether the ransom is paid or not, be aware that attackers will always try to extract useful data from a compromised machine. When a sensitive machine data has been compromised, it might include usernames & passwords for internal or web resources, payment information, contact email addresses, and more.
