BazarCall Ransomware warning to all insurance firms

    A Ransomware called BazarCall seems to target Insurance agents and clients and so Insurance specialist CFC has issued a warning to the companies into similar business and operating across the globe to step-up their defense-line against malware attacks, by proactively taking adequate measures.

    BazarCall has a peculiar habit of infecting its victims. As usual, it is being distributed by phishing emails, but tricks the victim into calling a call centre, instead of clicking on a malicious link.

    And as soon as the victim calls up the phone-line, they somehow lure the victim into downloading malicious software.

    From then on, the hackers carry out spreading the infection into the network of the victim and use various tools to remain undetected on the network.

    According to Tom Bennett, the in-charge of the Threat Analysis team of CFC, BazarCall accounted for over 10% of malware incidents on insurance companies and the percentage might increase as some of such cyber incidents go unreported.

    CFC is a London based Insurance Company that offers free malware removal to all of its customers at zero cost. It has also responded to calls of its victimized clients down with BazarCall Ransomware and assisted them to remove the malware and recover their precious data through backups.
