Ransomware is malware that locks your device or encrypts your files, making them unavailable. A ransom is then demanded to unlock such devices or files. Ransom amounts vary, but on average, the ransomware demand was about one bitcoin last year (approx. $500 at that time). Ransomware is typically spread via phishing emails or exploit kits and is targeted at consumers and businesses alike.
