Linked – Ransomware victims have paid over $25 million in the past two years, study finds

posted in: Links, Tech | 0

As long as there’s money to be made in it, ransomware will continue to be on the rise, and there is no doubt there is money in it.

 

“While it isn’t really suggested for victims to pay the ransom demanded by these malicious programs, it seems that many are still doing so. According to a recent study presented by researchers at Google, Chainanalysis, UC San Diego, and the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, those that have been infected have paid over $25 million to ransomware operators over the past two years.”

I’ll say it again, have good backups, and practice safe computing.
