Cybercriminals never stop innovating.
As ransomware has become a big business for cybercriminals nowadays, the existing threats are evolving and new ones with more deadly functions keep emerging in the market. Microsoft reported that a new type of ransomware, Ransom:Win32/ZCryptor.A, has the power to spread like a worm. It leverages removable and network drives to propagate itself and affect more users. The self-propagating behavior of this new variant has also earned it the name "ransomworm" (i.e. ransomware worm).
