Not only has the number of ransomware attacks increased, but ransomware has continued evolving, with some of the most popular forms of ransomware last year having disappeared while new forms of ransomware have emerged. In some cases, these are even more disruptive and damaging. “Looking into the evolution of last year’s ransomware families and how they’ve changed this year, most of them have actually gone down in numbers. This year’s popular ransomware families are not last year’s popular ransomware families,” Liviu Arsene, global cybersecurity researcher at Bitdefender told ZDNet.
