New Cerber ransomware strain morphs every 15 seconds to avoid detection
Security researchers have discovered a new twist in the plot in the ongoing evolutionary journey of the Cerber ransomware. The authors of the malware are now using a new technique that enables Cerber ransomware to morph itself every 15 seconds to avoid detection.
Ransomware is a type of malware that infects victims’ systems and then proceeds to hold all data within as hostage until victims pay up a specific amount of money as ransom. In most cases, victims are asked to pay up in Bitcoin and ransom amounts can range from anywhere up to a few hundred to even thousands dollars.
