Ransomware surges after a short decline in Q1
Q2 sees a marked increase in activity from a select few prolific ransomware operations
Cyber researchers see a 21.1% increase in ransomware attacks compared to Q1 2022, driven by huge increases in activity from three prolific criminal operations.
The AlphV group ramped up activity by 117.9% during Q2 of this year, including a recent hack on Bandai Namco, while Palermo hackers Vice Society also claimed more victims, representing a 100% increase, Digital Shadows said in a report. LockBit was the most active operation, accounting for 32.77% of all successful ransomware attacks during the quarter, though its activity only represented a 13.8% increase from its Q1 activity.
