Ransomware is the term used for softWARE that encrypts your valuable files and demands a RANSOM for the “key” to decrypt them. Because the hackers behind the extortion are making large sums of money, ransomware has become so prevalent that IT Security specialists are coining it a “pandemic”. The reason the extortionists behind ransomware make money, is that many victims discover their backups have been failing, or are also encrypted.
Paying the money does not guarantee getting your files back!
