Ransomware is a class of malware which restricts access to the computer system that it infects and demands a ransom paid to the creator of the malware in order for the restriction to be removed. Some forms of ransomware encrypt files on the system's hard drive, while others simply lock the system and display messages intended to coax the user into paying.
Ransomware typically propagates like a conventional computer worm, entering a system through, for example, a downloaded file (usually sent via a link in an email) or a vulnerability in a network or operating system service. The act of opening the email, if affected, can trigger numerous types of problems on your computer as well as continue to spread to the user’s network or operating system.
A recent 2020 Vanson Bourne survey (sponsored by SentinelOne), shows that recovery from a ransomware infection takes ~33 employee hours. On top of that, 48 percent of organizations that participated in the survey were affected by at least one ransomware attack during the last 12 months. The core activities typically done to recover from the ransomware infection include decrypting files and data encrypted by the attackers and replacing encrypted files and data with backups.
There are two styles of ransomware attacks that have emerged. The first may be the more likely to strike, but it is also potentially less debilitating. This version simply locks the victim's screen. The second style of ransomware is a more targeted attack, and actually encrypts files on the target computer.
