Imagine having to pay hackers a ransom in order to free your company’s data! No matter the size of your business, you are susceptible to being a victim of ransomware hackers. Ransom malware also known as Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents users from accessing files or servers critical to a business’s operations. By placing malware on a network through SPAM, injection, or compromised websites, hackers can encrypt data with an encryption key that is only know to them. In some cases, smart ransomware can even detect and lock backup data. Cracking encryption keys would require immensely powerful computers and possibly years thus making it an impractical practice. Hackers then demand a cryptocurrency payment to unlock your data so that you can continue business as usual.
Malicious SPAM can look like a real email with links to compromised websites that can inject ransomware onto your computer and all accessible servers.
Malware Advertising is the process of using ads or pop ups on compromised websites like pirated movie, sports streaming, or pornography websites.
