In recent years, ransomware has become one of the most prevalent and damaging types of malware. Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts a victim’s files and demands a ransom be paid in order to decrypt the files. In May of 2017, the WannaCry ransomware attack affected over 200,000 victims in 150 countries and caused billions of dollars in damage. The Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan was just one of the many organizations affected by WannaCry. ransomwarebeaumontdoublepulsar
In recent years, ransomware has become one of the most prevalent and costly cyber threats faced by organizations. Ransomware attacks are often very sophisticated and can be very difficult to defend against. Beaumont Hospital in Michigan was the victim of a ransomware attack in 2016 that resulted in the hospital having to pay a $1.5 million ransom to the attackers. The DoublePulsar malware was used in the attack and is a particularly nasty piece of ransomware that is very difficult to remove.
