Ransomware attacks surged by 47% in July
According to a report by NCC Group’s Global Threat Intelligence division, ransomware attacks increased by 47% in July compared to June, adding more evidence for a trend of rising global cybercrime.
The report has its own particular metrics but it mirrors others that have come out recently which collectively paint a picture of increasing international cybercrime, with NCC claiming ransomware attacks were up by almost half, from 135 in June to 198 in July. It seems to measure large scale attacks levelled at businesses as opposed to tracking every induvial who has clicked on a dodgy link, which would obviously create a much higher number.
