Many are not familiar with ransomware or are the first to hear its name. This is a very scary method that can lead to your ultimate defeat.
This is what happens when you are attacked by ransomware. No antivirus or company in the world can unlock your file without the maker of that ransomware.
It is of two types, the most terrifying is the encrypting ransomware which when encrypted on the PC will encrypt all the files in its own algorithm which cannot be fixed without any key. The other ransomware is the locker ransomware which locks the file but does not encrypt it. There is another type of ransomware that can be used to lock the boot.
This is because Malware is more dangerous than others:
A file of just a few kilobytes can wreak havoc on you in an instant.
Usually, hackers will leave a picture on your PC with instructions. The hackers have to go to the secret site provided by the Tor browser and buy the algorithm to unlock the bitcoin with money that is worth more than 500-1000 dollars and the time of payment is given. If they do not pay, they will have to pay double.
How does it work?
How to live: It is spread through email , so if you are sceptical before opening the files in the email, then open the online file opening site. Numerous sites to open such files can be found by searching on Google. And of course, keep a regular backup of the PC.
