An #Outsider Newsflash (Special Edition): @US-CERT Guidance on Ransomware
US-CERT has received multiple reports of ransomware infections in several countries around the world. 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.
