Ransomware evolui e se estende a outras plataformas

O modelo de negócios por trás do crimeware mudou. No passado, os agentes maliciosos geralmente lucravam com seus esforços para roubar identidades, ou números de cartões de crédito, e vender os dados no mercado ilegal por um valor baixo. Nos últimos anos, o preço dos registros roubados despencou, caindo de US$ 25 por registro em 2011 para apenas US$ 6 em 2016. Isso exigiu novas fontes de renda para os hackers, fazendo com que muitos deles apostassem no ransomware devido aos recentes avanços na distribuição do ataque, pagamentos anônimos e a capacidade de criptografar e descriptografar dados de forma segura
