Oski malware

It’s also virulent: when it was first investigated, Oski had racked up 43,336 stolen passwords, primarily from Google campaigns. About 10 hours later, that number had increased to 49,942, with an in the logs from 88 to 249.

Ryuk Ransomware

The Ryuk Ransomware uses the Wake-on-Lan feature to turn on powered off devices on a compromised network to have greater success encrypting them.

Wake-on-Lan is a hardware feature that allows a powered down device to be woken up, or powered on, by sending a special network packet to it. This is useful for administrators who may need to push out updates to a computer or perform scheduled tasks when it is powered down.
