Would you give up a customer’s data or credentials if that was the demand in a ransomware attack? No financial payment, just a password, or a document. That’s a nightmare scenario, and it’s just one of the few that Steve Ragan and Rick McElroy, Security Strategist at Carbon Black talk about on this week’s episode of Salted Hash.
Throughout the episode, Rick and Steve discuss a recently published report on ransomware economies. CSO’s coverage of that report is available now. In addition, they also discuss how ransomware is being spread now that email is no longer a primary delivery method, attacks on platforms other than Windows, and the future of malware.
