"Ransomware" is a nightmare for consumers but positively lucrative for scammers, which is why the pace of new attacks is speeding up. The latest twist on ransomware is particularly audacious, with scammers using a spam campaign to reach as many consumers as possible with an enticing email come-on: "Your package has been delivered," according to new research from computer security firm Endgame.
