Ransomware attacks three law firms over the weekend

Three US law firms were hit with ransomware over the weekend and researchers estimate 50% of US organisations were attacked in the past year. The astonishing growth in cybercrime was revealed in the ‘State of the Phish‘ report from cybersecurity firm Proofpoint. The researchers analysed more than 9 million malicious email, spoke with 600 industry leaders and 3500 IT employees to come up with their estimate.

They also ran 50 million phishing attack simulation emails.
