Ransomware attacks have become so common that the word "common" lacks the vitality to qualify their occurrence. There is a new model dubbed "ransomware-as-a-service" (RaaS), whereby novice hackers can access sophisticated ransomware. It's a subscription-based model that enables affiliates with low coding erudition to ride on the coding expertise of malware developers to deploy ransomware attacks and in return pay some percentage for the service. RaaS is strategically designed to empower even the most novice hacker to deploy sophisticated attacks.
