Yeo Siang Tiong, Kaspersky’s general manager for Southeast Asia, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, said, ransomware attackers are targeting all types of organizations in Bangladesh. Although the number of such attacks is low, apart from the financial loss, the reputation of the organizations is damaged. And so organizations should use technologies capable of protecting against ransomware attacks.

Kaspersky experts recommend always using strong passwords and two-level authentication technology as well as regular software updates to stay safe from ransomware attacks.

Kaspersky lead malware analyst Fedor Sinitsyn said that the era of widespread mass attacks by encryptors on both individuals and businesses is gradually fading away.

“Instead, we are witnessing a shift towards organised groups that execute hacks involving data theft and encryption, commonly referred to as double extortion.”

“The rationale behind this evolution lies in the perpetrators’ ability to operate with greater efficiency,” he said.
