Ransomware is a particularly painful type of malware. Malware is “hostile or intrusive software” that is illegally introduced onto your computer for malicious reasons. When ransomware infects your computer it blocks access to your data until you pay the criminals who are extorting you. It’s an illegal threat to your data.
Cyber criminals are always on the prowl, analysing online behaviour of users and looking for new opportunities to infect computers. Ransomware is the latest malicious threat that infects computers and blocks access to data until a ransom is paid.
Computer users are to be warned that many victims of ransomware attacks thought it would never happen to them, ending up unprepared to withstand the attack and paying thousands in ransom.
