Ransomware Protection & Detection


What Is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents users from accessing their system or personal files and demands a ransom payment in order to regain access. The earliest variants of ransomware were developed in the late 1980s. The ransomware encrypts files, or sometimes the entire hard disk located in the infected machines, as well as the files on connected external devices or network drives. The victim (user) suffers from denied access to stored data until the attacker provides the decryption key. The attacker often demands a ransom payment in return for a decryption key.

If the data had been encrypted. Is there any way to decrypt?
