Paying Exfiltration Ransoms
In addition to extorting money for a decryption tool, current variants of ransomware such as Ryuk, Sodinokibi, Netwalker, and Nephilim commonly attempt to exfiltrate files. TAs are then able to demand a separate ransom in exchange for not posting this information or selling it. Unfortunately, there is no method to prove that exfiltrated data have been totally erased by the TA. In fact, in numerous instances the threat actor has limited control over the disposition of the data. Settling an exfiltration ransom does not eliminate the necessity of seeking the advice of legal counsel, performing an audit on which files were stolen, and carrying out the necessary notifications to affected entities. In almost all cases, paying an exfiltration ransom is not recommended.
