A new family of ransomware known as Snake (aka EKANS or SNAKEHOSE) was discovered in January 2020. Scripted in the Go programming language, this new breed of ransomware is heavily obfuscated and is known to target an entire network rather than individual workstations.
This dangerous new ransomware type that has the victims' details hard-coded into it has sunk its teeth into many business enterprise networks, especially in industrial control system (ICS) environments.
