Where do ransomware attacks come from?
Ransomware attacks can be perpetrated from a variety of locations. Unfortunately, threat actors often mask their IP addresses making it difficult to pinpoint their actual location. Ransomware attacks can be conducted by a lone threat actor or a group that manages the attacks.
You should always report a ransomware attack to law enforcement. By reporting a ransomware attack, you can help authorities track, investigate and prosecute ransomware attackers and prevent future attacks.
