Ransomware is a type of malicious software that encrypts a victim’s files and demands a ransom payment to decrypt them. Ransomware attacks are usually carried out using phishing emails or drive-by downloads. Once the ransomware has encrypted the victim’s files, it will display a message demanding a ransom payment in order to decrypt the files. Ransom payments are typically made using cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin.
Ransomware attacks can have devastating consequences for victims, as they can lose access to important files and be forced to pay a ransom in order to get them back. In some cases, victims have even been blackmailed by attackers who threaten to release their confidential data if they do not pay the ransom demand. While there are some tools that can help victims recover from ransomware attacks, it is often difficult or impossible to completely remove the malware from an infected system without reformatting and reinstalling the operating system.
Ransomware is becoming an increasingly common type of malware, with more than 4,000 attacks happening every day worldwide so they say.
