Ransomware goes nuts as KP Snacks becomes latest victim


The attack on KP Snacks is another example of how relentless cybercriminals are in their search for profit.

Ransomware holds victim organizations business operations hostage, which uniquely impacts retailers and other organizations that provide daily, direct services to their customers.  

Such attacks directly affect the victim’s revenue generation and thus provide additional leverage to the attackers in extracting the ransom.
