Ransom malware, also called ransomware, is a type of virus that infects users’ computers and prevents them from accessing their data and other personal files on their devices. In order to regain access to data and personal files a ransom payment is required. In other words, the users’ computers are held hostage until the ransom has been paid, explaining how the virus got its name. This virus first appeared in the late 1980s, and the ransom payment was to be sent via snail mail. These days, payment is to be made to the ransomware authors via credit card or a system called cryptocurrency.
