Have you heard of RaaS? “Ransomware as a service” is a new black market where developers of ransomware sell their products to other cybercriminals for a commission, expanding the reach of their crimes and generating revenue. In 2015, a powerful and destructive RaaS named Encryptor entered that cybercriminal scene.
As cybercriminals become more and more sophisticated, they continue to find new ways to make their malware activities look less suspicious. The latest trend is to use legitimate sites such as Google Docs to transfer your stolen information. By using credible sites instead of a suspicious offsite server, the attack appears less suspicious to both human eyes and security software.
