Ransomware attacks rampant, paying still not a good option

A flurry of ransomware attacks reported this week affected entities in Georgia, NewYork, Tennessee and Florida. File-encrypting malware has grown rampant lately, with the likes of Ryuk, Sodinokibi, or Dharma/Phobos targeting organizations in both the public and private sector. The actors behind these threats do not discriminate between targets but statistics from a ransomware incident response company show public sector victims pay ten times more than private companies.
