What is Ransomware?

What is Ransomware?

I have seen this term used multiple times. I am curious about what ransomware is, and what I need to do to protect myself from it if it is a concern.

Ransomeware is a virus that gets into your computer and encrypts all of your files so you can no longer access them.  Typically, you get this type of virus by clicking on an attachment in an email or clicking a link in an email or on a website. 


Once your computer is infected, you will normally receive a notification on your computer asking for an amount of money to have your files unlocked.


You can protect yourself from ransomeware by having a good antivirus and antimalware solution and most importantly by being diligent before you click on anything to ensure that you know that it is legitimate.
