Cyber-extortion and ransomware : Verisign publishes white paper

Verisign and its security division has published a white paper on ransomware and cyber-extortion, a prevalent source of Internet crime.

The 12-page ebook covers the aspects of ransomware activity, a “nightmare scenario” and explains why standard protections alone are not enough.

An excerpt below:

Cyber extortion is an increasingly prevalent threat to today’s online-enabled businesses, and a prominent tool at attackers’ disposal – ransomware – is gaining momentum as one of the most feared malware types tracked by enterprise security teams.

Ransomware is malicious software designed to infect a vulnerable computer system and encrypt its files, effectively halting productivity and leaving the victim with little recourse but to meet the attacker’s demands.

Verisign provides DNS security services, designed to protect such attacks; to download the white paper, click here, or preview below.
