Ransomware not going away?

I was catching up on Ransomware coverage from the program Security Now. This show is hosted by Steve Gibson and the Twit Network. Steve’s got show notes in PDF as well as a transcript available on his Security Now page on GRC. I was very interested in the ransomware epidemic, because I’ve been following it as of late. This is going to get interesting, because everything I’ve read, and what I’ve also heard from this show indicate that Ransomware will not be going away. Everyone I’ve read and listened to indicate its going to stay for awhile.

As disabled people, this can really be a problem if our businesses or even personal computers get hit. I don’t know how the computer would work with our assistive technology applications if files start to get encrypted. I got to thinking about this when hearing this episode. Episode 730 of the podcast talks about the epidemic, and 731 talks about a ransomware author getting way too gredy and didn’t even get a dime. SN 730 and SN 731 are here for you to peruse and listen to.

SN 731 talks about fake things too, including how someone modified their voice to sound like the boss, and someone wired money as instructed by the boss in one story. What the landscape is having. This is going to get interesting, and Steve’s site has transcripts so you can read what he’s saying if it is too confusing to you, or you have a hard time.

What do you think will happen for the ransomware epidemic? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
