How Does Ransomware Spread?

80% of ransomware spreads via email; however, an unsuspecting victim can become infected by visiting malicious websites and other methods. A person can download a file or open an attachment that has been compromised with malware. People are also often infected by malvertising, which is malicious advertising. Malvertising requires little or no interaction from the user, which makes it especially dangerous to businesses. Once malware is in your equipment or servers, then your computer screen may be locked (locker ransomware) or predetermined high-value files like spreadsheets and documents may be encrypted and rendered inaccessible by the virus (crypto locker ransomware).
