Ransomware: how to know where it was sent in your company!


Ransomware is big in the news these days, but what is it exactly?

A ransomware is a malicious software that hijacks your data. To do so, the ransomware encrypts the data and then asks the owner to send money in exchange for the key that will allow you to decrypt your files.

Your users receive an email. They download the attachment (ZIP) out of habit, and then, everything goes wrong! Here you are with encrypted files everywhere and you do not know who is the origin of the infection!

Let’s see how AUDIT4MAIL is going to help you find out in  just a few clicks who received the ransomware in your company. 

Go to the Helpdesk module, in the “e-mails” section. You use the search module by e-mail address, by subject, by date, depending on the information you have gathered so far on the ransomware.

Once you have identified the suspicious e-mail, you can visualize already some key information:

– Date and time the e-mail was first received in the company

– List of the people who received it internally

By right-clicking of the external e-mail address, sender of the ransomware, a menu is displayed that allows you to go further in the analysis.

Then click on “go to dashboard
