A ransom is usually required to regain access. The earliest ransomware variants were developed in the late 1980s and payment should be made by post. Today, ransomware authors order that the payment should be made by cryptocurrency or credit card, as a rule, payment is made in Bitcoint. It is easy to tell who a ransomware variant is spreading again.
And the funny thing is (actually sad) then the price of the Bitcoints rises rapidly because again criminals reschedule the Bitcoint and the share price increases. You can even use the criminals to ransom money legally in many shops Pay coffee .
However, ransomware is not just a problem on the versions of Microsoft's Windows operating systems, whether it's a Windows desktop, tablet, Surface Pro / Go, or even a server operating system, ransomware also affects MAC, Android and Linux.
