This new form of malware is one that is rapidly spreading and can cause lots of problems for those infected. Ransomware functions typically by searching for valuable files or data and encrypting them. Once they’re encrypted, the victim will be informed that they need to pay an amount to get the code to unlock their files. Another form of this type of malware is not to encrypt files but to display pornographic images on their system and stop only if a certain amount is paid in ransom.
