Ransomware: Collateral Damage

Did You Know? Ransomware costs more than you think. Indirect Cost: Collateral Damage.

As with any type of cyber infection, victims should expect the full gamut of damage, even if it’s not directly related to the attack. In one such incident, as reported by Brian Krebs, a company initially infected with Ryuk ransomware had its entire credentials stolen and then reused for all sorts of malicious activities, in part with the help of another notorious malware family, Emotet. While this may not be typical behavior of many ransomware-related hackers, who usually go directly for the quick payout, it does show the potential for further collateral damage from such incidents. #trianglecompudocs #didyouknow #ransomware #malware #collateraldamage
