Extensive research by Sophos has uncovered a trove of new information on the notorious SamSam ransomware, revealing that it has affected far more victims than previously thought, and raised vastly more in ransom demands – almost $6 million.
Through original analysis, interviews and research, and by collaborating closely with industry partners and a specialist cryptocurrency monitoring organization, Sophos has uncovered new details about how the secretive and sophisticated SamSam ransomware is used, who’s been targeted, how it works and how it’s evolving.
