Ransomware: What is it and how can you prevent it?

Ransomware is malicious software that encrypts or otherwise blocks access to the data stored on a user’s computer or mobile device. The victim is then told to pay a “ransom” to have the files unlocked so they can be accessed once again.

There are several ways to protect yourself from ransomware and our friends over at Pixelprivacy.com have complied this excellent article which covers all the basics for most users. You can check it out here.
