New Ransomware Threats Have Been Discovered including MMM, Embrace, Magician and Scarab-Osk

Cybercriminals keep pushing out new ransomware and ransomware variants to affect more computers worldwide. This article will introduce you several latest widespread ransomware and the effective methods to prevent from being a victim of any ransomware attacks.

MMM (also known as Triple-M) and Embrace ransomware were newly discovered in May. They are severe threats that encrypt important files with a very strong encryption algorithm. Variants are generally stronger due to the further modifications based on its original ransomware code. For example, the newest Magician and Scarab-Osk ransomware are respectively from EDA2 open-source project and Scarab family. Once you find .triple_m, .embrace, .magic, and .osk extensions appended at the end of your files, it means your files are locked by ransomware. Like most ransomware, a ransom payment is demanded
