Cerber Ransomware Now Hunts for Databases

Submitted by • July 23, 2020

Finally, and most important, the malware now attempts to stop database processes running on the target system so it can encrypt the data. This is a significant shift in focus from consumers to businesses, which typically run databases containing important operational data. When database files are open and in use by software, they cannot easily be encrypted. Cerber attempts to close the database software so the files can be encrypted.
