What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents a user from accessing their digital files or shutting down their computer. The virus will encrypt the files so that they cannot be accessed until a ransom is paid. This means that the user has to pay in order to have access to their information and computer again. Ransomware is typically downloaded when users receive an email relating to an invoice, invoice, or bill with attachments or links within it.
