    Every 10 seconds someone gets hit by ransomware


    I've just seen an advert on Facebook by Zonealarm where they state that every 10 seconds someone gets hit by ransomware. I wonder how true that is.

    The source for that statement would seem to be this..

    David Emm, Senior Security Researcher, Kaspersky Lab said:
    ...Our research shows the rate of ransomware attacks increased in 2016 from one attack every 20 seconds to one every 10 seconds...

    ...or at least Zonealarm and Kaspersky are singing from the same hymn sheet....
