Cyphort Labs presents "Malware's Most Wanted: Ransomware Resurgence: Locky and Other “New Cryptolockers”
Like many viruses, botnets and malware families that we’ve seen over the past decade, hackers continue to find new ways of reinventing old threats. And this is no different for Ransomware.
Ransomware has come a long way from non-encrypting lockscreen FBI scare warnings like Reveton. In 2016 alone, there have been new ransomware families popping up and we expect that to only pick up steam over the summer.
In this edition of MMW, Nick Bilogorskiy, Senior Director of Threat Operations at Cyphort, will discuss:
Locky, the new “it” ransomware and how it works
A deep dive into a new family of ransom locker discovered by Cyphort Labs in March, that uses TOR Hidden Service
Other new ransomware families and why it’s becoming the preferred monetization method for attackers
