* We have been reading about towns in Florida being attacked by ransomware recently. Hackers use this malware to lock down the town’s data and don’t give it back until a ransom is paid in bitcoin. * The very same thing has happened to Eurofins Scientific, the United Kingdom’s largest police forensics lab contractor. It has also paid a ransom to hackers in order to regain access to its data which had been encrypted by the ransomware.
