What Is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of malicious software that, after it infects a computer, uses encryption to make the files on that computer impossible to access. An infected computer usually displays a message telling the victim that he will need to pay to regain access to the encrypted files. Ransomware is so named because it essentially holds the files on the infected computer for ransom.

How Does Ransomware Work?

Ransomware uses encryption to lock the files on an infected computer. Encryption is the same technology that protects your credit card numbers when you shop online. With the encryption key, you can read the contents of the locked files. Without the key, though, the files only look like a mess of random characters. It’s impossible to extract any useful information from an encrypted file. Some people have managed to regain access to their encrypted files following a ransomware infection by paying the ransom demands. However, it is important to remember that the people who spread ransomware are criminals. Even if you do pay the ransom, there is no guarantee that you’ll receive the encryption key. It’s better to avoid ransomware entirely if you can.

Common Types Of Ransomware

All types of ransomware use encryption to deny access to data, but different ransomware strains behave in different ways. Some strains prevent access to the computer entirely. Others only encrypt the documents and other files on the computer. Some ransomware strains contain fake messages from law enforcement institutions. Other strains are honest about the fact that they are ransomware.
