What is ransomware

  • by

If you follow what’s going on in the tech world, you might heard or come across with a new global threat in a form of a virus known as Ransomware. While it was not actually quite new, this type of virus really has a great impact to users who were affected either individual or worst, to an organization.

What is ransomware?

So, what is this ransomware anyway? Ransomware is a type of virus which, when executed, will encrypt all documents in an infected computer, be it words, excels, pdfs, and event image files. it will then defaced the infected PC’s wallpaper, normally with a black background and a message informing that the user’s documents have been encrypted, and time frame is given to the user to get back the encrypted file with a decryption key. To get this key, the user will need to pay a sum of money, like a ransom, normally in bitcoin currency. If the user failed to pay after a period of time, the ransom will doubled up and will make it more expensive to pay. 
It is quite impossible cure or clean this virus since the files were encrypted, and there is no way for you to crack the encryption. There are cases where infected user paid the ransom, but still unable to get back the file because they never get the decryption code.

Google Chrome with Windows 10

Is it just me? Or is Google Chrome is not suitable for Windows 10?
Or is it Microsoft’s Edge (the new browser for Windows 10 that replaced Internet Explorer) cannot coexist with Chrome? That what I’ve been experiencing lately.
I usually used both Internet Explorer and Chrome while doing my work or just surfing the net with my PC. Some of our in-house applications requires Internet Explorer to run. And sometimes when printing a webpage, IE and Edge gives a correct page margin when printing. So you will not have a blank page with just a header and a footer.
Recently, my PC tends to hung, especially when I rapidly switch between opened apps. Well, just now, it happens again. I was using my Chrome while Edge is running at the background. Suddenly, it froze..!! I still can move my mouse and open a program. But I can’t see the opened window. I can only see the frozen chrome page. Can’t click anywhere. Can’t scroll. Also, can’t even click the start button..!!
While I was frustrated..? Well, I was uploading my daughter’s  homework’s website, and it was almost done when everything froze.
Managed to keep my coolness, I’ve tried a few things. Then tried hover the mouse to the opened app’s icons on the taskbar and close it. IT WORKS..!! So, I’ve closed everything except chrome since I know that the uploads hasn’t finished yet. When I closed Edge, everything goes back to normal..!!
