What is a Ransomware attack?

A Ransomware attack is a severe type of cyberattack that is initiated by a malicious software, widely known as Ransomware; which encrypts an organization’s significant system data and typically enables cyber extortion for financial gain. Once initiated, Ransomware stops users or organizations from gaining access to their data, applications or systems until a ransom is paid usually in the form of crypto-currencies that are very difficult to trace.

How does an information or network system become infected with Ransomware?

An information or network system can be infected with Ransomware in several ways; most commonly through emails that contain malicious attachments or through drive-by downloading from infected websites, which occurs when Ransomware is downloaded without a user’s knowledge. Furthermore, advanced techniques of Ransomware infection have been detected in recent times, such as the exploitation of exposed Network servers as entry points to obtain unauthorised access into an organization’s network.
