Ransomware: Your Money or Your Data

 

What is it?

​A sophisticated virus that locks user data with high levels of encryption. Hackers then force victims to pay a “Ransom” to get their data back.



 

How do you get infected?

​Compromised websites and spam emails received through “primitive” email systems are the most commonly used channels to carry out the attack.



 

What’s the degree of the breach?

​Ransomware starts off with encrypting data residing on a specific machine all the way to preventing access of all data on user machines and servers.
