AXLocker, Octocrypt, and Alice: Leading a new wave of Ransomware Campaigns

Ransomware is one of the most critical cybersecurity problems on the internet and possibly the most powerful form of cybercrime plaguing organizations today. It has rapidly become one of the most important and profitable malware families among Threat Actors (TAs).

Depending on the type of ransomware, it can infect the entire operating system or encrypts individual files. The TAs will then typically demand payment from the victim for the decryption of their files.
