The Mamba is back! After spending quiet time in the deep web, this not-so-common ransomware is now on its way to infest the networks of their target organisations.

What makes this kind of ransomware even more alarming is that it isn’t made to collect bitcoins from its target but seeks  to cause severe destruction. When the Mamba successfully encrypts one’s data, there is virtually no way to decrypt the stolen informatIon.
