ransomwhe.re ransomware addresses

Cryptocurrency addresses linked to payments for ransomware attacks

Ransomware is a form of malware designed to encrypt files on a device, rendering any files and the systems that rely on them unusable. Malicious actors then demand ransom in exchange for decryption.

Cryptocurrencies have, in recent years, become a common method to transact ransom payments in such attacks. The ransomwhe.re site collects addresses (accounts) that are known to be linked to these payments.
