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.
