With WannaCry dominating news headlines for a week, the world got a taste of what the future of ransomware may look like. Unfortunately, the future is most certainly not bright. Creators of ransomware are highly organized groups that on paper resemble companies in terms of structure and professionalism. The sole aim of such malware is to generate profit and such organized crime groups know their market incredibly well. Once your files become encrypted after infection the ransom note details how to buy Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, and how to pay the ransom in order to have files decrypted. The amount needing to be paid is carefully considered, normally amounted to a few hundred dollars. So while the situation is infuriating, many victims decide to pay and hope it will not happen again.
