This was some welcome news we saw today and big congrats to Cisco and OpenDNS (who Cisco recently bought) for the accomplishment. We’ve had several clients in the last 6 months be hit with variants of this and it is some of the worst malware we’ve seen in nearly 20 years in the industry.
The take down of 2 of the largest Ransomware/Encryption malware schemes is something to breathe a sigh of relief about. See the article below for details. It gets a bit techno complex, but it shows you the lengths the good guys have to reach to beat the bad guys.
