Ransomware Rising – Criakl, OSX, and others – PhishMe Tracks Down Hackers, Identifies Them and Provides Timeline of Internet Activities

Over the last few months, the Phishing Intelligence team has observed a huge increase of ransomware. Many attackers are starting to experiment with ransomware as an alternative to quickly monetize. Dridex has employed a new family of ransomware named Locky, which is a pretty drastic shift in what this group is known for doing. We’re even seeing attackers go after OSX with ransomware, something that was once thought to be immune from malware, however there were nearly 6,500 users who downloaded the compromised BitTorrent client.

Follow along with us as we deconstruct a recent ransomware attack and hack the hackers behind the attempt.
