While drugs may still be the main focus of markets on the deepweb, a new wave of product has the potential to cause some uproar in the community. According to HackRead, some of the most deadly ransomware to ever exist has become available for less than $40. The ransomware, named Stampado, gives the victim 96 hours to pay to have their computer unlocked. After 96 hours, data starts disappearing. And it’s fully undetectable at this point.
If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you may be aware that the usage of ransomware is becoming far more common. Ransomware is a term used to describe a piece of software that takes control of a victim’s computer and holds the data hostage. Until the owner pays to access his personal information, the ransomware will start deleting files at random. Eventually, if the bounty is never paid, there won’t be any files left to recover.
Stampado, the ransomware that’s making the news, is a huge threat to anyone who values their data. The virus, as stated before, is completely undetectable by current anti-virus software.
