Can Ransomware Infect Backups?

Yes, ransomware can infect backups. Ransomware is a type of malicious software that infects a computer system and encrypts the data, making it inaccessible unless the user pays a ransom.

This type of malware can spread quickly and can infect any type of data, including backups. To protect backups from ransomware, it is important to regularly update and patch operating systems, applications, and other software, as well as use a reliable antivirus program. Additionally, it is important to ensure that backups are stored securely, such as on an external hard drive that is not connected to the network. Finally, it is important to regularly test backups to ensure they are recoverable in the event of an attack.
