Ransomware

These programs encrypt your files rendering them unusable and targets files on your computer as well as files in shared drives. If you’re infected you will get an alert (similar to the image below) that says your files have been encrypted and you have a specific amount of time to pay the ransom. If you get this alert, shutdown your computer immediately and call the Helpdesk.
