SynAck Ransomware Needs A New Name: Synack is Taken

Rajesh Krishnan

Superman and BizarroHey ransomware! Yeah, you. I’m talking to you. Find a better name. Synack is taken already, OK?

On behalf of our marketing department, we’d like to suggest a few more appropriate names for whatever you brilliant security researchers need to name next:

  1. EssWhyEnnAySeeKay
  2. Alt-255
  3. Those guys protecting like a freakin’ billion payment accounts
  4. rand()
  5. NotSynack
  6. Malware That Has Nothing to do with Synack(r)
  7. <script>alert(document.cookie);</script>
  8. Alexa, play ‘Ransomware’
  9. Hodor
  10.   Rick Astley
