Cancer Ransomware forgets how to Ransomware

Interesting read about the new ransomware that forgot to ask for a payment to decrypt your data.

We recommend keeping backups of your files/folders, software installs, license keys, and when possible complete images of your computers as backups to external network attached storage devices.

This Trojan acts like a ransomware, but during SonicWall’s investigation it failed to show a warning or instructions on how to regain files and send the payment They said, “It ended up being more of an annoyance than a Trojan trying to defraud its victim.” As with any virus/ransomware/malware it would have the ability to upload additional files if necessary.
