If you read the news, it's hard not to see that ransomware is far from dead and may be worse then ever.

Emboldened by large government payouts, ransomware developers are increasingly targeting cities, the enterprise, and charities where they can create large scale damage and thus potentially large-scale ransom payments.

It is no longer a playing field swamped with small players. While the smaller variants do exist, attackers are now performing more targeted attacks than ever with tried-and-true ransomware variants.
