Data exfiltration, also known as data extrusion, is the unauthorized removal of data from a device. In ransomware scenarios, it’s typically a second way to extort payment from a victim—the ransomware actor will threaten to release the (usually private) data publicly unless the ransom is paid. This is in addition to the ransom to de-encrypt locked files.
