Ransomware is any software that encrypts your data until a sum of money is paid.
There are a few different ways ransomware gets installed:
1: Drive by downloads
2: Clicking on an attachment in an email
3: Websites with Trojans that you may come across accidentally
How to Prevent this:
1: Watch what you click on
2: Don’t download anything without reading the fine print
3: Only open attachments from people you know
