New Delhi [India], Apr 20 : While people claim to value their memories more than any other form of data stored on their digital devices, they are happy to sell them for little money, research by Kaspersky Lab shows.
A survey has shown that for 49 percent of people, private and sensitive photos of themselves are the most precious data they have on their devices, followed by photos of their children and spouses.
The thought of losing these precious memories is considered more distressing for them than the prospect of a car accident, breaking up with a partner, or a quarrel with a friend or family member.
However, when confronted with the decision to delete this data for money, people nevertheless gave their digital data such as photos away for as little as 10.37EUR.
New Delhi [India], Apr. 10 : The platform nomoreransom.org is now available in 14 languages and contains 39 free decryption tools. Since Kaspersky Lab's last report in December, more than 10 000 victims from all over the world have been able to decrypt their affected devices thanks to the tools made available free of charge on the platform.
No More Ransom was launched in July 2016 by the Dutch National Police, Europol, Intel Security and Kaspersky Lab, introducing a new level of cooperation between law enforcement and the private sector to fight ransomware together. Since the launch, dozens of partners from all continents have joined.
