FBI Releases Article on Ransomeware


The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has released an article addressing the proliferation of ransomware campaigns. Ransomware is a type of malicious software that infects a computer and restricts users' access to it until a ransom is paid to unlock it. Individuals and organizations are discouraged from paying the ransom, as this does not guarantee access will be restored.

Users and administrators are encouraged to review the FBI article Ransomware on the Rise for details and refer to US-CERT Alert TA16-091A for more information on ransomware.
