Does this scenario keep you up at night? It sure has kept the employees of the City of Atlanta up most nights in the second quarter of 2018 as they recovered from a SamSam ransomware infection that shut down a significant portion of their network for months. In the case of shipping company Mearsk, they lost over $200 million from the NotPetya ransomware attack. They were required to conduct a complete infrastructure overhaul, which included the reinstallation of 4,000 servers and 45,000 PCs according to a ZDNet article. If you recall, the 2017 NotPetya ransomware attack never had a successful payment mechanism to get your data back. It resulted in the complete destruction of systems for thousands of businesses in eastern Europe.    Ransomware is evolving from a wallet stealing threat to a weapon of mass destruction that has the power to cripple businesses or even countries. There are many different directions that ransomware has taken over the past few years; as it finds its place as a major threat to our businesses.
