Simply put, ransomware is a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid. Hackers will put a ransomware virus on your computer – or your entire network – that makes it impossible for you to access your files until you pay them to unlock it.
The ransomware virus starts by taking over your computer, leaving you unable to access any of your personal files and documents. That data is still on your computer, but it is encrypted – meaning that a decryption key is required to regain access. The attacker demands a ransom in exchange for the decryption key, and this can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
Attackers may also threaten to release your sensitive information, or may even pretend to be a law enforcement agency, demanding payment of a ‘fine’ rather than a ransom. Nationality is not a problem for ransomware attackers. They will blanket send malware into any industry they feel is vulnerable, waiting for at least a small percentage to panic and pay.
It is very important, however, to not pay ransomware attackers. Even if you pay the ransom in full, you may still not get your data returned to you.
To remove the ransomware and get your system back safely, you’ll need to find a company like TechBrain to carry out ransomware removal on your device. TechBrain is a Perth-based company with ransomware recovery skills and, alongside our partners, we will work diligently to regain your documents and personal information.
