Ransomware

Home Ransomware
Ransomware is a type of malicious software that blocks access to the victim's data or threatens to publish or delete it until a ransom is paid.While some simple ransomware may lock the system in a way which is not difficult for a knowledgeable person to reverse, more advanced malware uses a technique called cryptoviral extortion, in which it encrypts the victim's files, making them inaccessible, and demands a ransom payment to decrypt them. In a properly implemented cryptoviral extortion attack, recovering the files without the decryption key is an intractable problem - and difficult to trace digital currencies such as Ukash and Bitcoin are used for the ransoms, making tracing and procescuting the perpetrators difficult.
