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.

The universal adoption of mobile devices in business environments has created new attack vectors that organizations struggle to address. A new report from CrowdStrike, the “Mobile Threat Landscape Report: A Comprehensive Review of 2019 Mobile Malware Trends,” offers a deep-dive into some of the threats that plague mobile devices, and provides recommendations for how organizations can best secure their data and networks against mobile threats.

CrowdStrike’s Mobile Threat Report details how mitigating the risks has become even more urgent because of the rapid adoption of mobile devices worldwide. In some regions, such as Latin America, mobile devices have surpassed desktop computing as a source for both business and personal use, including email access, banking and authentication, making mobile security an even more pressing issue.

CrowdStrike’s report offers an overview of the key types of malware observed so far in 2019 and the deployment mechanisms adversaries typically use. It also identifies the adversary groups and unaffiliated criminal actors that target mobile devices and how their tactics — and the mobile threat landscape in general — are evolving. The report includes valuable recommendations that can help you better secure your organization against mobile threats.
