What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malicious software used by criminals as a way to steal data, and extort money from a victim. It infects a computer and restricts the users access until a ransom is paid to unlock it.
Most Ransomware is sent to an unsuspecting victim through a phishing email, and can install itself if the user simply clicks a link or opens an attachment.
It's important that you know how this type of cyber attack works and what you can do if it ever happened to you.
