Hackers have hauled in millions over the years, mostly in bitcoins, with a blackmail scheme called ransomware, experts say.
It just gets worse doesn't it, damn.
System Restore says hello!
This is nothing new, but what is new is how prevalent ransomware is these days. I have worked on several different PC's in the past year with the main problem being ransomware keeping users from accessing their computers. Most the clients had no games installed, but all had been using Internet Explorer as their main web browser. Install Chrome, or firefox, and then download an adblock extension. This will keep over 90% of viruses off your computer from daily surfing. just remember to support trusted sites by allowing ads when you know its safe.
Why the hell do people have to do this. Why do people have to be such dicks and try to hold something over others all just to get their money. I am tempted to live like a hermit save single player games.
As the joker once said "If you're good at something ,never do it for free" Unfortunately they're just too good at hacking and we have to pay for it :(
