What is ransomware?
While it may sound like a threat of modern times, ransomware has been around for 30 years. Today hackers can threaten your files using email with false advertisements that can lock your files. To recover your files, you will have to pay a specific amount of money. In many cases, the files are never recovered.
WannaCry: biggest ransomware outbreak so far
While viruses have been a big threat, ransomware attacks are by far more harmful. It can completely halt the operations of a company since it holds all valuable documents as a hostage preventing any access or possible recovery.
More and more companies are protecting themselves against this type of attack, but in May 2017 it became painfully clear that there is more than enough to achieve for hackers. This ransomware outbreak, also known as WannaCry, has infected more than 200,000 PCs in around 150 different countries.
