Ransomware poses a threat to you and your endpoint device. But what makes this form of malware so special? “Ransom” is the English term for “ransom.” The “ransomware” phenomenon is about extorting ransom money. Often, people also talk about encryption software, as this type of extortion is based on the fact that files or entire systems are encrypted and only released after receiving a ransom.
In most cases, a ransomware infection proceeds as follows: the malware is downloaded and thus gains access to the device. Depending on the type of ransomware, either the entire operating system or individual files are encrypted. In the following, ransom is then demanded from the victims concerned.
If you want to minimize the risk of a ransomware attack, then you should use high-quality services from Foreus Blockchain Analytics. With our solution “DeepWeb Intelligence” we support companies in case of damage, but also in prevention (here the risk of attack is reduced). In the event of damage, we can search the Clearnet, DeepWeb and Darknet for stolen data and track or monitor its distribution.
