Case Analysis: The Ransomware Threat:

The Ransomware threat is an article by Jason Glassberg.
The problem that is being discussed is the increasing use of ransomware, especially by
organized crime groups.


Furthermore, another impact is financial. This is in some ways. For instance, most
cybercrime cases end with the victims having to pay a ransom for it to be eradicated from
their systems.


The article also takes a dig into the profile of the hacker.
The procedure to take upon infection by ransomware begins with switching off all infected
computers and networks.
