Targets of ransomware attacks shelled out a combined $25 million in ransoms over the last two years alone.

Researchers at Google, Chainalysis, UC San Diego, and the NYU Tandon School of Engineering came to the astounding total by following the Bitcoin transactions the victims paid their hackers through the blockchain, then comparing them against known samples to create a comprehensive overview of the ransomware ecosystem.

The study tracked 34 separate families hit by ransomware attacks and revealed that just a few strains of malicious software were responsible for the majority of the attacks and profits.  read more
