Security vendors FireEye and Fox IT have launched a Web tool which allows victims of Cryptolocker Malware attacks to decrypt files without paying ransom to cybercriminals.
Kaspersky Lab has uncovered a type of encrypting ransomware that attempts to hide its malicious nature.
AVG has released its security threats predictions for the new year, and the sophisticated attacks that defined 2013 look to continue.
Cybercriminals will increasingly use ransomware, malware and hacktivism over the next year to move further into the lucrative business market.
No longer content to remain the victim, some organisations are starting to take a more offensive approach to security attacks.
The security space may have been abuzz with activity in 2013, though Blue Coat Systems product marketing director, Jonathan Andresen, said it essentially was the same trends recycled with some adjustments.
Just when it seemed 2013 might end without any major security attacks, the CryptoLocker malware has surfaced and begun creating havoc.
Trending cyber attacks such as ransomware may be typically overlooked by SMBs, but Lumension chairman and CEO, Pat Clawson, warns that they are actually in the line of fire.
