Ransomware Attacks

Targeted ransomware attacks on government entities such as state departments, local (city / municipality) entities, schools, universities, enterprises, service providers and even small-medium businesses have seen a constant rise over the years. Much like the evolution of malware, Ransomware attacks have also evolved from basic type of attacks, usually limited to single host with some valuable data, to advanced attacks that are capable spreading across the network, aided by worms (ransomworm or cryptoworm) to increase hostages and monetary gains.
