On this week’s Cyber Security Brief podcast, Dick O’Brien fills us in on the latest research we have published on our blog about how a growing number of ransomware attackers are using virtual machines in their attacks. We also discuss a few other ransomware-related stories, including REvil introducing a new Linux version of its ransomware, a Babuk ransomware builder being leaked online, and a couple of stories showing the amount of money that can be involved in ransomware operations. Elsewhere, the FBI recently released a report stating that over-60s lost around $1 billion through online fraud in 2020, the U.S. Secret Service released a cyber crime Most Wanted list, a FIN7 gang member was jailed, and the EU launched a new cyber security unit.
