Paying Exfiltration Ransoms
In addition to demanding payment for a decryption tool, current variants of crypto-ransomware such as Ryuk, Sodinokibi, DopplePaymer, and Egregor often attempt to exfiltrate files. Hackers are then able to require an additional ransom in exchange for not divulging this data or selling it. Sadly, there is no method to be certain that exfiltrated data have been totally deleted by the TA. In fact, in numerous instances the threat actor has little control about where the information ends up. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the need for engaging the guidance of privacy attorneys, conducting an inventory of files were stolen, and performing the mandated alerts to affected entities. In almost all cases, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
