from the Wall Street Journal:

According to the U.S. Department of Justice,ransomware attacks have quadrupled this year from a year ago, averaging 4,000 a day, most of which go unreported. Typical ransomware payments range from $500 to $1,000, according to cyberrisk data firm Cyence Inc., but some hackers have demanded as much as $30,000. Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles paid roughly $17,000 to unlock files in February, following an attack that crippled a large portion of the hospital’s computer systems.

 A company in Delaware
was victimized by ransomware.
They coughed up the dough,
but wouldn’t you know . . . 
they only got back the Lord’s Prayer.
