A ransomware is a type of malicious software (malware) that encrypts a victim's files or locks their system, rendering them inaccessible until a ransom is paid to the attacker. Ransomware attacks typically involve the encryption of critical data, which can only be decrypted upon payment. It is a profitable form of cyber extortion used by threat actors to target individuals, businesses, or organizations. Ransomware attacks can cause significant disruption, financial loss, and reputational damage if not effectively mitigated and addressed.
