Ransomware: Data Loss

Did You Know? Ransomware costs more than you think. Indirect Cost: Data Loss. And unfortunately, after all the damage caused by the attack itself, paying the ransom does not guarantee the safe retrieval of the victim’s encrypted data. 

Recently, it was discovered that the data recovery mechanism used by Ryuk is faulty, causing an incomplete recovery of some types of files and leading to data loss even if the victim had paid the ransom demand.

In other cases, hackers have been known to simply walk away and never bother to provide the decryption keys, leaving the hapless victim out of pocket and their data lost forever. #trianglecompudocs #didyouknow #ransomware #malware #dataloss
