The number of corporate users hit by crypto ransomware is skyrocketing

InfoWorld - Thu, 06/23/2016 - 11:22

This includes programs that only lock the computer's screen to prevent its use as well as those that hold the data itself hostage by encrypting it -- the so-called cryptors. The rise of cryptors in particular has been significant, accounting for 32 percent of all ransomware attacks last year compared to only 7 percent the year before, according to Kaspersky Lab.
