What is RansomWare?
Ransomware is a form of malware that infects devices, networks, and data centers and prevents them from being used until the user or organization pays a ransom to have the file or server unlocked. Ransomware has been around since at least 1989, when the “PC Cyborg” trojan encrypted file names on a hard drive. However, in recent years, ransomware attacks have become increasingly complex, targeted, and lucrative crime. Digital currency like Bitcoins are usually used as the main mode of payment.
