Triple Extortion Ransomware

Triple extortion ransomware is a ransomware attack in which the attackers apply three levels of pressure on their victims. The attackers encrypt and threaten to share or sell data as in a double extortion ransomware attack. In addition, they extend the threat of data exposure to third-parties who may be impacted, such as the victims’ employees, clients, and business partners.
