Settling Exfiltration Ransoms
In addition to extorting money for a decryption utility, modern variants of ransomware such as Ryuk, Sodinokibi, Netwalker, and Nephilim often attempt to steal (or "exfiltrate") files. Hackers can then demand an extra payment in exchange for not divulging this information or selling it. Unfortunately, there is no way to be certain that stolen files have been completely erased by the hacker. In fact, in numerous instances the threat actor has little say about data custody. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not free you from the need for engaging the guidance of privacy lawyers, performing an inventory of data were taken, and carrying out the mandated alerts to impacted entities. Generally, paying an exfiltration ransom is a waste.
