Unproven Data Recovery
Play • 34 min

What if you were hired for an office job but ended up negotiating with cybercriminals? There aren’t many rules around the cybercrime known as ransomware, but this is a story about one rule that was definitely broken. By the end it, the path to the truth lead to a place on the other side of the world. It was a place that no one expected and disturbingly, no one wanted to be.

Speakers: Renee Dudley, Technology Reporter, ProPublica, and co-author of "The Ransomware Hunting Team"; Jeremy Kirk, Executive Editor, Information Security Media Group.

The Ransomware Files theme song by Chris Gilbert/©Ordinary Weirdos Records.

Other music by Blue Dot Sessions.
