Ransomware is a type of malware that, like its name suggests, holds your computer’s files for “ransom”. There are different types of ransomware, they all work in different ways, but they all prevent you from using your computer normally. Ransomware can prohibit you from accessing your files and from running certain apps. If you’re affected by ransomware, you will be asked to provide money in order to recover your computer’s functionality.
