Facts about Ransomware

Ransomware is on the rise and can cause a costly and potentially catastrophic situation for organizations.

  • Infection starts at a workstation
  • Workstation can get infected by an email attachment OR by visiting a website
  • Starts by infecting user document folder
  • Spreads to network share that workstation is connected to it
  • AV can automatically remove the infection AND encryption key.  If this happens it can cause the infection antidote to be useless
  • User I presented with Ransom Note (stored on desktop)
  • User NEVER admits to seeing Note (from our experience)!
  • Ransom ranges from a few hundred to THOUSANDS of Dollars OR Bitcoins
