RAA...! A New and Unique Ransomware Threat
Why Is It So Dangerous?
A New Trend
What Happens When a RAA Email Is Opened?
When an email containing the RAA ransomware is opened, the program encrypts important files on the victim’s computer so that the person is essentially locked out of those files. RAA then displays the ransom message (reported to be in Russian in this case) which demands that the victim pays $250 to reverse the encryption and release the files.
What Does This Mean For Your Business?
Clearly businesses need to raise awareness among staff that they all need to be very careful about opening emails with attachments and / or emails from sources that are not familiar.
