Kaspersky researcher on Russian ransomware ecosystem

Anton Ivanov for Kaspersky: A look into the Russian-speaking ransomware ecosystem.

He says:

One of the findings of our research is that 47 of the 60+ crypto ransomware families we’ve discovered in the last 12 months are related to Russian-speaking groups or individuals.

And:

While analyzing the attack statistics for 2016, we discovered that by the end of the year a regular user was attacked with encryption ransomware on average every 10 seconds, with an organization somewhere in the world hit around every 40 seconds.

Good article.
