Description: Ransomware is a type of malware that attempts to extort
money from a computer user by infecting or taking control
of a victim’s machine or the files or documents stored on it.
Typically, the ransomware will either lock the computer to
prevent normal usage or encrypt the documents and files to
prevent access to the saved data.
• Prevents you from accessing Windows and other devices.
• Encrypts files so you can’t use them.
• Stops certain apps from running.
