Ok, we can all agree that lately there’s an increasing focus on ransomware. Why?
Since DIY tools, kits and workshops are present everywhere and they are globally popular, it was just a matter of time DIY ransomware kits will appear as well.
Previously, we have been always associating ransomware with some experienced hackers. Now, with with these kits, everyone can do it.
How does it work?
According to PCR, these DIY ransomware kits are just programs that contain forms with questions like:
• What do you want your ransomware to be called?
• How much money do you want the user to pay to get their information back? and
• What bitcoin wallet do you want the ransom to be paid into?
Afterwards, you just make your click and….Voila! You have your own ransomware.
One of the amazing facts is actually how much ransomware hackers “earn” money – in 2014 they “earned” $25 million in half a year and now we are talking about hilarious numbers like $1 billion.
Bitdefender’s senior e-threat analyst Bogdan Botezatu even said that this is the biggest issue he has seen recently in the security space and he even associated it with cancer.
Due to the high expansion of ransomware, in one of its latest updates Zemana AntiMalware has included ransomware protection, in both versions - Free and Premium, in order to protect everyone. Here we don’t talk anymore about regular protection anymore. This is a sincere problem where one ransomware can steal all information you have and than your nightmare starts.
For you, not to experience that, save your time, nerves and money and install Zemana AntiMalware.
