VirusTotal for Google did this analysis. Launched in 2004, VirusTotal was acquired by Google in September 2012. Then in January 2018, VirusTotal went under the control of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) cyber security company Chronicle Security.
This Total Report of the virus helps security practitioners, researchers and the general public around the world to understand the true nature of these ransomware attacks. This report enables Internet experts to fully analyze suspicious files, domains, URLs and IP addresses. Providing this information, Vicente Diaz of Virus Total said about the first ransomware activity report.
Dias said ransomware activity has increased tremendously in the first two quarters of 2020, but since then they have completely declined. About 130 different rescue teams were active in the first 6 months of 2020 and 2021. The activities of at least 100 of these rescue teams will never stop.
Hackers are now not only demanding money but also threatening to leak important and vital information if not paid or legal action is taken. Hackers use a variety of methods to recover attacks. These malware attackers use botnet malware or other remote access Trojans (RATs) for recovery attacks.
In most cases, newer ransomware models are used for the attack. Israel is the target of most ransomware activities and such activities declared by Israel are 600 times more than the grassroots.
India continues to be the target of ransomware activities and India ranks sixth in the list of 140 countries, which is a matter of concern. The report states that there was no ransomware attack on the Google Chrome OS cloud.
