Ransomware is a type of malware that locks a computer’s content and holds it for ransom.
Attackers then demand ransom - payment - from the computer user in return for unlocking the computer’s files so they can be used again. The attacker may claim that the computer is locked due to illegal or questionable conduct by the user.
Ransomware is often distributed through phishing emails. It can get onto your computer in the same way as any other malware.
