What does ransomware do?
There are different types of ransomware. However, all of them will prevent you from using your PC normally, and usually they encrypt all the files and data you have. They can target any PC users, whether it’s a home computer, endpoints in an enterprise network, or servers.
• Prevent you from accessing Windows.
• Encrypt files so you can’t use them.
• Stop certain apps from running (like your web browser).
Ransomware will demand that you pay money (a “ransom”) to get access to your PC or files. We have also seen them make you complete surveys. There is no guarantee that paying the fine or doing what the ransomware tells you will give access to your PC or files again.
After some hard work we have managed to recover most of the encrypted files so that our clients continue operations.
In consequence, we would like to withdraw your attention in taking some extra security measures, in order to keep your businesses safe and operational. It is very important to safeguard your data, which is very important for every business.
