What is ransomware attack and how to find it out?

Ransomware is a type of malware which the attacker uses to encrypt the files of the victim. It might be the files of a specific person or a small business organization or a huge business organization. This mostly happens when the security of the specific computer network is not that strong and could be easily hacked. When the attacker successfully encrypts the victim’s files, he/she will be asked for a ransom to be paid only then the access to the encrypted files will be given.
