As we have seen in the crypto world, nobody is safe from crypto-based ransomware, and in the case of one Spanish city – Jerez de la Frontera – that lesson is being learned all over again.The attack first began on Tuesday night with what were deemed small outages of the town’s website.Crypto ransomware has also gone up heavily in 2019, with Coveware reporting that the average bitcoin or crypto payment during the first half of the year has shot past the $12,000 mark.
