What is a Ransomware and How to protect Yourself Against it?
Cyber criminals or hackers flood mailboxes with spam thus pushing out fake documents that deliver ransomware. This attack relies on users opening attached malicious document that will appear legitimate. Therefore, it is important that recipients of unexpected email messages never open the attachments in them.
I have seen people lost years of cherished family photos and important documents because of Ransomware. So, it is important that you get paranoid when opening an attachment that came in an unexpected email message. This is because email attachment is one of the oldest and easiest ways of infecting a computer with ransomware, viruses, spyware or other malware.
