Ransomware Hostage Rescue Manual

Ransomware can take different forms, but in its essence, it denies access to a device or files until a ransom has been paid.
In this manual, we discuss ransomware as PC or Mac-based malicious software that encrypts a user or company’s files and forces them to pay a fee to the hacker in order to regain access to their own files.

The hackers primarily use the following vectors to infect a machine: phishing emails, unpatched programs, compromised websites, poisoned online advertising, and free software downloads.

There’s a new compiler at the helm of our monthly list of data breaches, following the departure of IT Governance stalwart Lewis Morgan, who leaves me with some mighty big shoes to fill.

Fortunately – or, rather, unfortunately ­– the new regime has a familiar ring to it, with another mammoth list of data breaches. By our count, there were at least 2,100,480,045 records compromised in March.

That brings the 2019 running total to 4.53 billion, and raises the monthly average to 1.52 billion.

Here’s the list in full:

Cyber attacks

Ransomware

*Not included in the total number of records, as they are part of the 1.2 million records affected in the already-reported Wolverine Solutions incident.
