Ransomware is malicious software that takes control of a device and locks it until the victim pays a ransom. It commonly installs itself through email attachments, downloads from unsafe websites, and infected USB drives. Once installed, ransomware can encrypt files on your computer or mobile device and threaten to delete them unless you pay the ransom.
