Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts your files and holds them hostage until you pay the attacker a ransom. It can be a very scary experience, but you can protect yourself by taking certain measures.
First, make sure you have a good backup system. That way, if you fall victim to ransomware, you can restore your files from a backup and not have to rely on the attacker to decrypt them for you.
Second, keep your software up to date. Ransomware often exploits vulnerabilities in outdated software, so keeping your software up-to-date can make it harder for an attacker to exploit your system.
Third, be careful what you click. Ransomware is often spread through email attachments or malicious links. If you’re not sure if something is safe, don’t click on it.
