The Jerich Show Episode 26 - More Low Blows from the Ransomware Gangs

In this episode Javvad and Erich take a look at the new low that the Ryuk ransomware gang is sinking to, that is targeting hospitals and medical clinics. 

They also discuss the incredible amount of money being made in the ransomware game, with one group claiming to have made over $100 million. On the other side of that coin, a ransomware gang donated $10k to charity. Why? Who really knows? Maybe guilt, maybe a PR move, maybe just a way to get mentioned on the show. 

Finally, to wrap up their ransom demanding trend today, they discuss a group that breached a Finnish psychotherapy clinic and then blackmailed the patients.

All of this and more in this week's show.
