What do you mean Ransomware incidents appear to explode in June 2020?

I want to start this article off with a question. The article’s title says that Ransomware incidents appeared to explode in June 2020, but why do you say that now? I’ve seen quite a number of articles this year alone talking about Ransomware. One of the most recent attacks actually killed someone (blog post) and yet two more articles indicate that there may be another potential death. (blog post 1) and (blog post 2)

If this is any indication that it exploded, the fact we might have two deaths may be an understatement. I can’t believe that this article says that this is the biggest explosion. Maybe in the number of ransomware cases with Sodinokibi attacks being talked about on programs like Security Now. They weren’t killing anyone! It may have been big then, but the article doesn’t even cover the recent potential attacks, and that bothers me. How can you say that Ransomware attacks exploded then when you have potential deaths now? That’s an explosion that I wasn’t looking for.

Granted, those attacks were big back then with 1 in three attacks, and these attacks I blogged and talked about here are small, I can give you that, but research needs to be mpore in to the bigger picture. It isn’t just one type of ransomware attack, what about the others since that group?

That group name as once under a different name which closed their doors if I remember correctly. If that is the case, then they’re no better than the former.

Want to read this full article from computer.co.uk and form your own opinion? Ransomware incidents ‘appeared to explode’ in June: IBM was published on the 30th of September. Have fun with this one!

Question, what has other research said about an article like this or is this the only research?
