Ransomware is malicious software, designed to block data access in order to extort money. As a form of malware, ransomware is most often used to infiltrate devices through infected emails or links that, in turn, recognize and take advantage of vulnerabilities in the operating system and installed third-party software.

Bagaudin - thanks for replying! This was with the 2015 version I purchased for work a while back. With previous versions we used to maintain a bank of system images and all that - for tech support - and with this new one because of the licensing it was limiting us to one machine. I also upgraded from a HD to an SSD and the process of making the image and restoring kept throwing errors even though both drives were fine. I eventually just quit using it and haven't in a couple of years.

Ransomware
Ransomware is a malicious software that encrypts a victim's data and makes it unusable until the victim pays the attacker a ransom fee in Bitcoin. Ransomware uses cryptography technology. Attackers decrypt the files only if the victims pays the bitcoin amount within a certain period of time.

It has been a full year since one of the worst ransomware attacks we have seen, the Wannacry attack last year. The attacks have changed. The way we are addressing them has also changed, but maybe not enough.
