Not Paying Ransomware is the Only Way We All Win

in LeoFinance2 months ago

Ransomware is on the rise because cybercriminals are being rewarded. Those who are impacted have been paying the ransoms, thereby funding and encouraging attackers to expand and target others.

The right path forward, to crush ransomware attacks, is clear. Better cybersecurity preparedness and a willingness to not pay extortionists, regardless of their actions, is how we collectively defeat ransomware.

Bitcoin and several other cryptos are far from anonymous. It amazes me that people would try to ransom and get paid in crypto. It would be too easy to track that back to someone. Now there are a number of cryptos that do provide anonymity. Smart hackers should be asking for rewards in that. But I'm with you... don't pay and they go away.
