CYBERCRIME CARTEL: NCC UNCOVERS ‘VIRUS’ ATTACKING ORGANISATIONS

Cybercrime group now targets organiational networks, NCC warns – Blueprint  Newspapers Limited

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has alerted members of the public that a cybercrime group has perfected a New Year scheme to deliver ransomware to targeted organizational networks.

The new ransomware uncovered by security experts has been categorized, by the Nigerian Computer Emergency Response Team’s advisory released over the weekend, as high-risk and critical.

According to the ngCERT advisory, the criminal group is said to have been mailing out USB thumb drives to many organisations in the hope that recipients will plug them into their PCs and install the ransomware on their networks. While businesses are being targeted, criminals could soon begin sending infected USB drives to individuals.
