Summary of Ransomware
Ransomware virus, a special type of malware, is classified as a “denial-of-access attack”, the biggest difference from other viruses is the method and the way it is poisoned. One of the ransomware simply locks the victim’s computer, while the other systematically encrypts the files on the victim’s hard drive. All ransomware requires the victim to pay a ransom to regain control of the computer or to retrieve the victim’s self-acquired decryption key to decrypt the files. Ransomware, which usually spreads in the form of trojan viruses, disguises itself as seemingly harmless files, often tricks victims into clicking on links to download through social engineering methods such as plain e-mail, but can also spread between an operating system or software vulnerabilities and connected computers, as do many other worms.
