Ransomware is a form of malware that targets your critical data and systems for the purpose of extortion. Ransomware is designed to encrypt files on a device, making any files or systems that rely on them unusable. Malicious actors then demand ransom in exchange for decryption. Ransomware actors often threaten to sell or leak the data or authentication information if the ransom is not paid.
