What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a destructive computer virus that lives under the malware family. If you are infected, this virus encrypts your digital assets such as Office documents, photos, videos, email archives and more.

Derived from the ransom model, the virus holds the encrypted files "hostage" until you fulfill the ransom demand is within a given period of time.

Even more nefarious, paying the ransom is not a guarantee of getting your files back, and in some cases, after the deadline expires the ransomware auto-destructs, leaving your files encrypted forever.

How is ransomware spread?

As technology continues to move forward, so do cybercriminals. Thanks to the Internet, we are now able to connect to millions of people from the farthest places in the world, anytime, anywhere. But just like a coin, there are always two sides. Cybercriminals take advantage of the reach of the Internet to hack more victims and make money from it, leveraging ransomware.

Cyberhackers make ransomware so "lightweight" that it's easily spread to millions of computers at once. The most common way to get infected with ransomware is via an email attachment.

Here is a typical depiction of how ransomware is spread.


There is no better way to spread a virus fast, easy and efficiently but the email system. Ransomware is a lightweight script under 1MB in file size. Cybercriminals attach this script on a masking email address pretending to be your family or friends.


The ransomware script won't show anything upon running. The script discreetly scans your entire computer and stores the paths from its temporary memory. Once all of your files have been scanned, the ransomware encrypts all of them at once, leaving your files unrecognizable by the operating system when opened.


Just like in real life, the script then demands a ransom, complete with the amount, a timer that lapses every second and an instruction link on how to pay it. Cybercriminals use cryptolocker to facilitate the payment transaction, which makes them anonymous and untraceable.


Typical ransomware doubles the money upon reaching the deadline, however, the more recent ransomware will opt to destroy itself instead, leaving your files encrypted forever.
