Linux users are in danger: A new ransomware!

Linux users face a new danger. Because a ransomware called RansomEXX has been detected. Kaspersky, a Russian security company, said that this software was inspired by ransomware for Windows-based computers.

It has been revealed that RansomEXX, which was detected in June of this year, has been used against which institutions so far. It was learned that RansomEXX suffered important formations such as the Texas Ministry of Transport, Konica Minolta, Tyler Technologies, Montreal’s public transportation system and Brazil’s court system.

Linux in danger from ransomware called RansomEXX

The computer version of this software is known as the “big game hunter” and it captures the information of organizations with poor financial means. Some organizations can get rid of ransomware without paying.

Realizing this situation, ransomware developers are now targeting servers directly, not employees’ computers, and causing organizations to fail to reach data centers by bringing them down. Formations that cannot reach the data center cannot get rid of this ransom with the help of security teams.

Kaspersky claimed that RansomEXX is about to become a trend and that this trend will disrupt every line of business in the Linux world. Emsisoft, a cybersecurity firm, stated that a cyber gang named Mespinoza (Pysa) has also developed ransomware similar to RansomEXX.

A ransomware group called Snatch has also become famous for small-scale attacks, but the success rate of ransomware is decreasing day by day. In the coming days we will see if RansomEXX can be successful. How do you think Linux users should take precautions for RansomEXX ransomware?
