Ransomware is an increasingly common type of cyber attack that is essentially a digital form of blackmail. There are two main types of ransomware. The first threatens to expose a victim’s private data, often including financial information or private files. The second restricts access to the files or other data on a victim’s system until the ransom is paid. While this type of attack has been in use since at least 1989, recent attacks on large corporations and even government agencies have brought it to the forefront of security concerns.
