Ransomware has evolved considerably from its first sighting — Cryptolocker was spotted on 5 September 2013 — and is unlikely to disappear anytime soon as the people behind this breed of malware develop more and more sophisticated ways of weaponising it, a senior security official from global vendor Sophos says.
Businesses in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia have paid an average ransom of $11,781 to ransomware attackers, with some businesses paying a ransom of more than $20,000, according to a newly published report on the growing prevalence of ransomware attacks in the APAC region.
Ransomware infections are reaching pandemic rates, and it is only going to get worse. While most are aimed at Windows there are a growing number of iOS, macOS and Android versions as well.
