Hackers using malware from the National Security Agency have been hitting dozens of countries worldwide in a high profile cyberattack recently.
However these actions are dwarfed by the damage being done by another far more dangerous hacker organization that is only just coming to light.
Called Microsoft, the rogue organization has been holding the world hostage for decades according to McAfee.com.
“It’s managed to infect hospitals, government departments, Fortune 500 companies – you name it!”
Currently the ransom runs about $200, which may not seem like much.
“But that’s per computer and they keep attacking over and over again so it quickly adds up.”
Cybersecurity experts say that once a piece of malicious code has penetrated to that degree, you’re just better off paying up.
“If you don’t, they’ll just release a newer version even sooner with extra security holes.”
