Kaspersky Lab describes WannaCry’s ransomware infecting victims by exploiting Windows operating system vulnerabilities. When in the system, the attacker installs a rootkit so they can download the software to decrypt the data.

Furthermore malware will encrypt the files in the device. A redemption request of USD 600 in the form of bitcoin is also displayed which increases over time.

Banks No Longer Main Target Hackers

All About Computer – The development of computing technology requires every user to be extra careful in protecting the data. If the bank was once the main target of hacker, hackers are now aiming for a more crucial sector.

Eko Widianto, Managing Director of Bintang Anugerah Kencana who is the distributor of F-Secure in Indonesia, stated that ransomware can now be considered as a new domino online terpercaya style terrorist. This cyber crime enters the public sphere and does not regard who its victims are.

“Ransomware mode is making money by stealing data, but it’s social engineering where he does not see who the victim is, he does not know his important victim, but the main target is not the bank,” he said.

Hackers do not choose banks as the main target because most banks already have layered protection. According to Eko, ransomware is aimed more at the public sector whose services and data are used by many people such as communication industry, Government sites or educational sites.

“Corporate may still be attacked, but if the individual I think not because the results of his threats become insignificant, if the bank, it is true that they have a lot of money, but to penetrate the bank will be much more difficult,” said Eko.

Furthermore, Eko also explains how ransomware can infect the device.

“The mode of ransomware is only two, the first through the second e-mail attachment from the site Well, I agree with Rudiantara that people should be aware of what attachments are downloaded, and do not arbitrarily open adult sites,” he continued.

In addition, Eko also explained that the variant of ransomware has increased sharply. In 2012, there is only one ransomware in the world. But the latest report by State of Cyber ​​Security Report 2017 released by F-Secure notes the existence of 193 types of ransomware in circulation until 2016 and this number is predicted to increase in 2017.

Meanwhile, out of 99 countries infected by WannaCry, Eko is not surprised that Ransomware is harassing Indonesia. He quoted Kominfo as saying that only 30 percent of users are concerned about the security of their devices in Indonesia.
