Ransomware Attacks Grow,Crippling Cities and Businesses
SAN FRANCISCO — New Orleans’s city government crippled. A maritime cargo facility temporarily closed. Hospitals forced to turn away patients. Small businesses shuttered.
McAfee’nin baş teknoloji sorumlusu Steve Grobman, “Akıllı ve bağlı olan her şey tehlikeye atılabilir ve fidye için tutulabilir. “Fidye için kritik altyapı sistemleri kullanılıyorsa, bunlarla başa çıkmak için politikamız ne olacak? dedi ”
The cause in each of these incidents: ransomware attacks. In recent years, hackers have taken to locking down entire computer networks and demanding payments to let users back into their systems.
The frequency of ransomware attacks — among the scariest and most costly online assaults — has been hard to pinpoint because many victims quietly pay off their attackers without notifying the authorities.
Now, an array of new data provides perhaps the best available picture of the problem. In 2019, 205,280 organizations submitted files that had been hacked in a ransomware attack — a 41 percent increase from the year before, according to information provided to The New York Times by Emsisoft, a security firm that helps companies hit by ransomware.
The average payment to release files spiked to $84,116 in the last quarter of 2019, more than double what it was the previous quarter, according to data from Coveware, another security firm.
In the last month of 2019, that jumped to $190,946, with several organizations facing ransom demands in the millions of dollars.
Security experts say that even these numbers underestimate the true cost of ransomware attacks, which have disrupted factories and basic infrastructure and forced businesses to shut down.
