SynAck Ransomware Sees Huge Spike in Activity

Over the past two days, there was an increase in activity from a relatively unknown ransomware strain named SynAck, according to victims who sought assistance in the Bleeping Computer ransomware support forums and from submissions to the ID-Ransomware service.

This particular ransomware strain — named SynAck or Syn Ack — was first spotted on August 3 and experts quickly determined that they were looking at a whole new ransomware strain altogether.

Activity from SynAck was never at alarming levels, but the ransomware made victims on a daily basis all last month.
