What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malware that uses cryptography to encrypt a user’s data and then threaten to publish online unless the user pays a ransom. Only after the ransom is paid will a decryption key be given. The source of this key is very difficult to trace.
Ransomware commonly use Trojans disguised as genuine files and delivers them as email attachments. These attempt to trick users into downloading or opening them. However, some ransomware can infect a system without any user involvement.
Today’s ransomware is highly advanced, and growing in quantity as worldwide internet usage expands. Busy professionals, or those who only use the internet casually from home, will not be able to reverse their system’s infection without a specialized tool.
UnHackMe Will Stop Ransomware
UnHackMe will block ransomware when caught with the Network Shield built into the program. It will also detect the affects of installed ransomware on your system and remove it. This includes malware that sneaks past your other antivirus software.
UnHackMe’s ultimate strength is detection and removal of malware that has already infected your system.
A regular antivirus program should block ransomware or at least recognize it before it is installed. Once it has passed by your other antivirus’s detection and entered your system, another tool is needed to find it. And this is where UnHackMe shines, as it both detects and removes threats that can hide deep within your system.
UnHackMe can be a critical piece of a 2 layer protection system that includes another antivirus program. Any busy, time strapped professional or parent should have these installed and running on their computer to ensure maximum protection against ransomware.
