What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of malicious software (malware) that is designed to deny access to a computer system or data until a ransom is paid.

It usually works by encrypting the user’s data and then demanding a payment in exchange for the decryption key. Ransomware attacks are typically carried out by sending an email with an attachment that contains malicious code. Once the user opens the attachment, the ransomware is installed and begins to encrypt the user’s data. Some ransomware variants have been known to spread from one computer to another, making them even more dangerous. The best way to protect yourself from ransomware is to practice good cyber hygiene, such as not opening suspicious emails or attachments and keeping your computer’s security software up to date.
