What Type of Ransomware Have You Got?
There are three main types of ransomware:
- Encrypting Ransomware
Incorporated with advanced encryption algorithms, this type of ransomware is designed to block system files and demand payment to possibly provide the affected user with a key that may or may not decrypt the blocked content. Examples of this type of ransomware would be Crypto Locker, Wannacry, Locky, CrytpoWall, etc.
- MBR Ransomware
Master Boot Record (MBR) ransomware is a type of Locker ransomware. The MBR is a portion of a hard drive that allows the Operating System to boot up. However, when the MBR ransomware attacks the drive, the boot process fails to complete and demands the payment of ransom as soon as possible. Exampled of MBR ransomware would be Satana, Petya, etc.
- Locker Ransomware
This ransomware locks the person out of their Operating System, making it impossible for them to access the data saved on it. Here, the files are not encrypted, but the ransomware still asks for a ransom to unlock the infected device. Examples of this type of ransomware are Police-themed ransomware or Win locker.
