According to a report cited by Bank Info Security publisher ISMG and in comments made directly to the WSJ,the FBI is reporting that ransomware is surging. Here to comment on this news is security expert, John Gunn.
John Gunn, VP of Communications, VASCO Data Security, comments:
With hacking such as ransonware, it’s almost always a game of numbers. If the odds of being a victim are close to 1 in 100,000, then most users will remain remarkably reckless in how they behave – the sites that they visit and the apps that they download. These are the same people that would never send their child to the park alone or visit certain parts of the city, yet they engage in very high risk behavior with their devices and wonder why they become a victim.
