Who should be aware of the Ransomware threat?
Home User: The home-user community for ransomware has been highly active for a few years now but has escalated in recent months. Being given just hours to either pay the ransom or lose permanent access to everything on your personal computer is a stark choice (often enough to precipitate agreement to the extortion). What value would you put on all your personal documents, photos, music, etc?
Corporate User: The stakes are even higher for a corporation, where the absolute dependency on IT systems means ransomware could threaten the very life of the business itself.
In the case of the LA Presbyterian Hospital, this threat to life was more literal, in that patient systems were under threat from Ransomware – the hospital paid the equivalent of $17,000 dollars in BitCoin as the “quickest and most efficient way to restore our systems and administrative functions”; and just like that a dangerous precedent was set!
