The Week in Ransomware - April 5th 2019 - Pacman Wakka Wakka
Quote:This week was marked by the release of a couple of decryptors as well as numerous variants of existing ransomware and new smaller variants. Strangely, someone released a Pacman themed ransomware.

Of particular interest is Norsk Hydro releasing a video documentary about the people who discovered that they were infected with the LockerGoga ransomware. Definitely an interesting and refreshing method that they are using to handle this security incident.
