SamSam: Targeted Ransomware Attacks Continue
Ransomware group remains highly active in 2018, focusing mainly on organizations in the U.S. The group behind the SamSam ransomware (Ransom.SamSam) has continued to mount attacks against entire organizations during 2018, with fresh attacks seen against 67 different targets, mostly located in the U.S. SamSam specializes in targeted ransomware attacks, breaking into networks and encrypting multiple computers across an organization before issuing a high-value ransom demand. The group is believed to be behind the attack on the city of Atlanta in March, which saw numerous municipal computers encrypted. The clean-up costs for the attack are expected to run to over $10 million.
