What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of malicious malware that infects computers with a virus capable of encrypting files on that device. In order to restore files, the victim must pay a ransom to the attacker. These attacks take place purely for monetary gain by cybercriminals and unfortunately even if the ransom is paid within the timeframe the cybercriminal set, getting a decryption code for your files isn't guaranteed. Typically, ransoms are as much as $500 and they can double if not paid when the time lapses. Additionally, some types of ransomware are programmed to self-delete after a few time limits expire, potentially leaving files encrypted forever.

What is Malware?

Malware, short for "malicious software," is a broad term that encompasses various types of harmful software designed to damage, disrupt, or gain unauthorized access to computer systems, networks, or devices. It includes a range of threats like viruses, worms, trojan horses, ransomware, spyware, and adware. Malware can steal sensitive data, encrypt or delete files, alter or hijack core computing functions, and spy on users' computer activity without their knowledge or consent. It often spreads through infected email attachments, malicious websites, or software downloads, exploiting vulnerabilities in software and operating systems. The intent behind malware can vary from vandalizing digital properties, personal or corporate espionage, financial gain, to simply causing disruption. The increasing sophistication of malware poses significant challenges to cybersecurity, requiring constant vigilance and updated security measures to protect against these evolving threats.
