Ransomware attacks have been in the news with increased frequency over the past few years. This type of malware can be extremely disruptive and even cause operational impacts in critical systems that may be infected. LockerGoga is yet another example of this sort of malware.

Cisco Talos has also seen wiper malware impersonate ransomware, such as the NotPetya attack.
