    Researchers have identified a new strain of ransomware (Lilu) targeting Linux-based servers. Get the details in this article:

    Thousands of web servers have been infected and had their files encrypted by a new strain of ransomware named Lilocked (or Lilu).

    Infections have been happening since mid-July, and have intensified in the past two weeks, ZDNet has learned.
