Today we are taking a brief look at the history of ransomware starting from 1989 to present. If you've ever been curious in seeing exactly what happens during a WannaCry attack we have included a video that demonstrates two computers on one network and the infection process between them. Hopefully this will be as close to seeing a ransomware infection in person as you'll ever get!

 

Special thanks to The Hacker News for letting us use the video in today's blog.
