ACCORDING TO THE FBI MORE THAN 4,000 RANSOMWARE ATTACKS HAVE OCCURRED DAILY SINCE 2016
|WHAT is Ransomware?
There are two primary types which target the critical data system of your PC for the purpose of extortion:
|HOW do I Protect Against Ransomware?
|HOW does it Work?
Randsomware directs the user to click a link and pay a ransom to regain access to their PC.
|WHAT Should I do if Someone is Infected with Ransomware?
|HOW did Ransomware get on the PC?
It can be downloaded inadvertently visiting a malicious or hacked website. Email attachments, removable drives and bundled software are often the culprit as well.
|SHOULD I Pay the Ransomware?
The link to payment options may contain further malware and there is no guarantee that payment will restore access to your PC. The user must evaluate their options of the cost of restarting systems from backup versus payment of the ransom and how best they can protect their customers, employees and business.
