Ransomware Encrypted File Extensions

The U.S. Government’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Assurance Agency states that Ransomware is a constantly-evolving type of malware that encrypts files on a device. This renders any files and systems that rely upon them inaccessible. Ransomware actors demand ransom to decrypt the files. Ransomware actors are known to target authentication information or data that has been stolen and threaten to sell it or leak it if they don’t get paid.

What does this mean? Hackers exploit security weaknesses to steal confidential data and lock files. Once you have paid the ransom, these criminals won’t give you access to your system or return files.

WannaCry, 2017, was the first significant ransomware outbreak. Ransomware attacks can be profitable and were demonstrated by the WannaCry attack, a large-scale and well-publicized incident. Since then, there have been dozens of ransomware variations and have been used in many attacks.

Ransomware has seen a recent rise in popularity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations quickly shifted to remote work and created gaps in their cyber defenses. Cybercriminals have exploited these vulnerabilities to deliver Ransomware. This has led to a surge in ransomware attacks. Ransomware attacks rose by 50% in Q3 2020 compared to the first six months of 2019.
