People, by nature, tend to be creatures of impulse and when faced with the challenge of a ransomware attack they are usually fast to react, they want to ensure the safety of their data. Paying the ransom plays directly into the criminal’s hand and the return of system access or retrieval of data is never guaranteed. Furthermore, this encourages this type of cybercrime to continue because criminals know that it is relatively easy for them to achieve success. Moreover, the commonness of cryptocurrencies is facilitating this profitable undertaking as it is more challenging to track the funds.
