Cyber security professionals are warning businesses and organizations to not meet the demands of cyber criminals who unleashed the latest most deadly malware attack ‘WannaCry’ that took over hundreds and thousands of machines globally in mere hours.
If you’re not familiar with ransomware, it is a kind of malware that kidnaps your data and then asks money in return. Hackers will demand a set amount and will give you a time limit to pay the ransom. Failure to pay the ransom on time will result in complete deletion of data.
Ransomware is so strong that it cannot be decrypted. You will have to pay the amount or keep a backup.
