Ransomware – What is it & how to get Help.

Ransomware is malware (a virus) that locks your computer and mobile devices or encrypts your electronic files, then demands a ransom to unlock them.

You can’t get to the data unless you pay a ransom.

However this is not guaranteed and you should never pay!

The European Police agency Europol has joined forces with police and cyber security companies to launch a worldwide initiative to combat and tackle together the exponential growth of Ransomware used by cyber criminals.
