Ransomware Recovery

What is Ransomware
Ransomware is a type of computer virus (or malware) that takes advantage of a computer’s security vulnerabilities to restrict access to a computer system.

Some forms of ransomware encrypt files on the system's hard drive whilst others lock the system and display a message designed to lure the victim into paying a ransom in exchange for a decrypt tool and private key.

Typically, the ransomware then demands a ransom be paid (usually in Bitcoins) with an offer to decrypt the data or restore the system to its previous working state.

Put simply, ransomware is a sophisticated form of computer extortion and is a global epidemic.

What should I do if I think I am infected with Ransomware
If you are on a network, the first thing you should do is disconnect the infected machine from the rest of the network in order to prevent the infection spreading to other computers on the network.
