What is ransomware?
Ransomware is one of the most dangerous and popular malware types out there. Starting from 2012, the number of ransomware scams have gone up exponentially. The core idea is to take your victim's data hostage and threaten to leak it until a certain amount of money is paid to you. The ransom is usually paid in cryptocurrency - mainly Bitcoin and Monero. WannaCry, one of the more well-known ransomware, traveled between systems by exploring the SMB vulnerability in Windows systems.
