What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malware that threatens to delete or encrypt the data on an infected computer unless the owner pays a ransom, usually in the form of either bitcoin or another newly popular cryptocurrency. The ransomware may also encrypt the victim's files and ask for a password to decrypt them. Ransomware typically arrives through spam email attachments, drive-by downloads, and file-sharing networks, strangling businesses' productivity.
How Does Ransomware Spread?
Ransomware spreads through a variety of means, including spam email attachments, drive-by downloads, and file-sharing networks. Word of it spreads primarily through social media. Once the ransomware is in the victim's system, its use becomes more effortless for their intruder.
Ransomware can reach victims by targeting all software vulnerabilities which have been discovered and patched since its last release. It also seeks out vulnerable access points such as default passwords or common business practices that make it easy for an outsider to gain entry into a system without much effort.
