Cloud 9 Advisory – 001 – Hello World – Ransomware

Hello friends of Cloud 9 Solutions,

Today’s topic: Ransomware!!

Basics:

  • Ransomware is a type of malware that restricts access to your own files.
  • The ONLY way to recover your files is by recovering from a backup.
  • It WILL jump to other computers on your network by their shares.
  • Paying the ransom has worked in the past, but is expensive, time consuming and is not guaranteed.
