Live Real Time Hacking and Ransomware Tracking Maps Online

Real Time Hacking Attacks

We’ve recently covered a few real time hacking maps but have decided to extend the list based on the recent ransomware activities with some additional real time hacking attack and ransomware tracking maps.

Ransomware refers to malicious software that blocks access to a computer system until a ransom is paid. Recent problems experienced with Ransomware are evident from infections, which have occurred in 99 countries including China and Russia. The organization that was worst hit by the attack was the National Health Service in England. It was reported that there was a WannaCry programme that demanded a payment of $300 dollars paid in virtual currency Bitcoin for the files to be unlocked. The DDoS attack, which targeted the DNS service provider DYN led to approximately three hours of service outage. Various lessons can be learned following the threats that Ransomware present to organizations. Organizations should ensure adequate disaster preparation to neutralize dangers such as unique files being held hostage. Ransomware protection should also address the human element by ensuring expansive user training.

With live hacking and ransomware tracking maps, organizations can now identify hacking attempts or cyber-attacks from different parts of the world as they happen in real time.
