Protect Yourself From Ransomware

Filed under Administrative, Information Tech on March 21, 2016.

Viruses are bad enough, but imagine one that forces you to pay money for your own computer files and data. This is a type of malware called Ransomware, and hackers use it to lock you out of your own computer and encrypt your data until you make an online payment to end the attack. Ransomware can infect your computer through things like insecure websites and phishing emails. To prevent this from happening to you, be sure to consistently update your anti-virus software and Internet browsers.
