Linked – Has paying the ransom become business as usual?

posted in: Links, Tech | 0

This post is full of bad news like this:

Radware released its 2018 Executive Application and Network Security Report. For the first time in the survey’s five-year history, a majority of executives (53%) reported paying a hacker’s ransom following a cyber attack.

Ouch. Like most hacking/scam/spam tools, they are usually popular because they work. Ransomware has been working. It will continue to grow and evolve so long as that is true.

Has paying the ransom become business as usual?
