Inside a ransomware attack: From the first breach to the ransom demand

Security researchers map out how a ransomware attack plays out over a two week period.

Security researchers have revealed the anatomy of a ransomware attack, showing how cyber criminals gained access to a network and deployed ransomware  -- all in the space of just two weeks.

Researchers from tech security company SentinelOne examined a server that was used by criminals in October last year to turn a small security breach in a corporate network into a damaging Ryuk ransomware attack. This sort of data can be vital in helping understand the tactics and techniques used by attackers.

The network was initially infected with the Trickbot malware.
