Frequently Asked Questions
- What is ransomware?
Ransomware is the malicious software that encrypts your files, blocks access to your device, and demands a ransom for the encryption key.
- What are the different types of malicious files?
Below are the most common malicious files detected:
•Viruses: Viruses are malicious programs that attach themselves to legitimate files or programs and spread when those files are executed. They can corrupt or delete data, spread to other files, and damage a computer's functionality.
• Worms: Worms are standalone malicious programs that replicate and spread across networks without requiring user interaction. They can spread rapidly, consuming network resources and causing damage.
• Trojans: Trojans are deceptive programs that appear harmless but contain malicious code. They often trick users into executing them by disguising themselves as legitimate software. Trojans can steal data, provide unauthorized access to a system, or create backdoors for attackers.
• Ransomware: Ransomware encrypts a victim's files or entire system, rendering them inaccessible. Attackers then demand a ransom in exchange for providing the decryption key. Paying the ransom is not recommended, as it encourages further criminal activity.
