Learn what makes Maze and Ryuk different from other ransomware, and see how they are successful at exploiting their victims' defenses and wreaking havoc once inside.
Ransomware first entered the scene as a serious and categorical threat in May 2017. Since then, the new category has been an incredible money-maker for threat actors and multiple variations have been iterating non stop ever since.

Reconnaissance Unit (TRU) has published this
Threat Assessment Report in an effort to help
educate our community on better identifying
indicators and providing guidance on a strategy to
counter-act this threat.
