The FBI encourages victims of ransomware not pay the fine
Home > Support > Security > Ransomware
Ransomware is a type of malware that severely restricts access to a computer, device or file until a ransom is paid by the user.
If you aren’t already familiar, Ransomware earns its name because it typically acts as software that locks up your system and encrypts your data. This class of malware is a criminal moneymaking scheme that can be installed through
deceptive links in an email message, instant message or website. It has the ability to lock a computer screen or encrypt important, predetermined files with a password.
In many of these cases the only way to move forward is to pay the ransom or replace the drive and lose access to your data forever if you didn’t have it backed up.
“Having a “layered approach to security” is one of the clichés of modern infrastructure, but for repelling ransomware, it should be taken seriously“
