Cyber Criminals – the predator and the prey
Cyber attacks demonstrate vulnerabilities and present threats that have the potential to cause significant damage.
The world, for example, experienced the impact of the WannaCry Ransomware malware attack on Friday 12 May which saw over 300 000 computers in 150 countries affected.
The WannaCry ransomware computer worm targets computers, encrypting data and then displays a “ransom note” demanding
payments of around $300 in bitcoin within three days, or $600 within seven days from the user.
