Ransomware attacks increased five times in the last year
We’re facing an ‘epidemic’ in ransomware, Kaspersky Lab says, trying to help everyone understand the scale of the problem. Just in one year, between April 2015 and March 2016, the security reseachers logged 718,536 users being hit with this type of malware.
That represents a 5.5-times increase in the number of ransomware attacks, compared to the same period a year before.
The worst thing about this is, at least according to Kaspersky Lab, is that victims tend to pay the ransom, just drawing more cyber-criminals into the ‘business’.
