Expert ransomware data recovery

Understanding the three main types of ransomware:


The simplest form of ransomware. These consist of fake applications or programs that mostly come as fake antivirus or cleanup software.

Lock screen viruses

The second-most dangerous ransomware type. When infected, the virus locks the user’s computer and displays a full size window with a message stating that the user must pay a ransom to unlock the computer.

Encryption ransomware

The most dangerous ransomware type. After gaining access to the victim’s computer, the attacker infiltrates the computer’s data and file structure to encrypt every file and folder on the computer.

Have you been hit by ransomware?

Follow these next steps:
