Bloomberg estimated that this single malware could cost over $2,5 billion for insurers and the overall cost could reach $4 Billion dollars. In June 2017, Petya, another ransomware attack caused serious business disruption at large corporations, including Siemens, Mondelez, and Maersk, among others. These attacks are just the tip of the iceberg in the money-making scheme designed by hackers, and do not include government sponsored attacks, which may target government structures, but also private strategic economic businesses, like utilities, energy, finance and even law enforcement and emergency services, which constitutes an actual cyber war.
