Ransomware has quickly emerged as one of the most dangerous cyber threats facing both organizations and consumers, with global losses now likely running to hundreds of millions of dollars.
The past 12 months have seen ransomware reach a new level of maturity and menace. Major ransomware gangs are capable of pushing their malware to millions of computers. Users who are hit with ransomware find their valuable data locked with strong, often unbreakable encryption.
The perfection of the ransomware business model has created a gold-rush mentality among attackers, as growing numbers seek to cash in. Infection numbers are trending upwards, with the number of new ransomware families discovered annually reaching an all-time high of 100 in 2015. Today, the average ransom demanded by attackers has jumped to US$679.
