What is Ransomware? Ransomware is a type of malicious software that mostly comes from spam email attachments, malicious links, and web browser exploits. Ransomware is known to encrypt files on an infected computer preventing it from operating normally or allow surfing of the Internet. Through the display of a customized notification, ransomware attempts to offer victimized computer users a way to unlock their computer. Fundamentally, ransomware locks up a computer through aggressive file encryption only to demand a substantial ransom fee to unlock it. Ransomware will hold a computer hostage until the demanded payment is made. Computer users who encounter ransomware look to spend hundreds to thousands of dollars to decrypt their files.
Ransomware has been responsible for countless attacks on everyday computer users, businesses, and even government entities. A hospital in California was once forced to pay a $17,000 ransom fee to restore the operation of their ransomware-infected computers so they could care for their patients. At one time, CrytoWall Ransomware made over $325 million for its authors in a matter of only six months. The U.S. Government has even advised the Department of Homeland Security to stop indirectly funding ransomware perpetrators by paying ransom fees to unlock their infected computers.
