What is ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of malware (malicious software) that comes to your system towards many ways like: bundle with freeware, scam emails, not trusted websites or malvertising attack. Once 7ev3n ransomware gets to victims it will systematically encrypt files or restrict access to computer. The target is any data of a value such as pictures, document, videos and adds the .r5a extension to the encrypted files. Since this process needs time and resource you may witness that something weird is going on. Computer will perform poorly or freezing up. After 7ev3n is done with the job of encrypting files, a pop-up message will appear providing information with solutions. Victims will be informed that files has been encrypted using RSA-2048 encryption algorithm and demand ransom for key to recover all data back and the remove the virus. In the last few years this type of online fraud got so much more popular, created by cyber criminals to generate revenue. Why bitcoin? Anything that can leave traces of exposing cyber criminals is eliminated by bitcoin untraceable transactions. Time provided for payment is also limited from 72 to 96 hours. You have to follow the rules provided by the ransomware message of what to do and how to pay.
