Sly criminals package ransomware with malicious ransom note
Ransomware continues to show signs of evolution. From a simple screen locker to a highly-sophisticated data locker, ransomware has now become a mainstream name, even if (historically), it has been around far longer than we want to look back. Although the criminals behind ransomware campaigns are observed to be refining their approaches—from the “spray and pray” tactic to something akin to wide beam laser precision—they are also fine-tuning their targets. They can single out organizations, companies, and industries; and they can also hold cities and towns for ransom. Ransomware has also stepped up in sophistication. Criminals have begun introducing certain forms of hybridization in their attacks, either the ransomware file itself is given capabilities outside of its type (e.g., VirRansom and Zcrypt variants that can infect files) or the entire campaign involves one or more threat vectors.
