A very informative event. CloudSec is a venue where technology and security evangelists gathered together to share insights and knowledge to everyone. Ransomware demo was presented and viewers were able to take a deep dive on how it can penetrate your computer and what it does. Several used cases were also discussed.

Some types of Ransomware: Have you been a victim?

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents or limits users from accessing their system, either by locking the system's screen or by locking the users' files unless a ransom is paid. More modern ransomware families, collectively categorized as crypto-ransomware, encrypt certain file types on infected systems and forces users to pay the ransom through certain online payment methods to get a decrypt key.

Delivery Channels

1. Through attachments usually from spammed emails.
2. Through visiting a malicious or compromised website 
3. It can also come as a payload either dropped or downloaded by other malware. 
4. Through downloading from malvertisements

Best Practices: 
  • Always backup
  • Strict Access Control
  • Patch Regularly
  • Educate all employees on signs of malicious attachs

The event is hosted by Trend Micro and a lot of exhibitors/sponsors participated. They were AWS, VMware, ION, CTLink, Netpoleon, DELL, Rightcloud, Eastern, Tenable, Nutanix, Schneider, Qualsys and MSI-ECS. Each booth has something to offer to the attendees, a lot of exciting games and give-aways.
