Ransomware is computer software that threatens to disrupt the normal working of your computer until you pay a ransom.
This malicious software, also known as malware, usually takes the form of a computer virus that locks down your computer files and demands a fee before allowing you access to them.
These viruses are sophisticated pieces of software which industry experts say are the fastest growing form of computer virus.
Most Ransomware is currently a Windows-specific type of malware that targets Windows operating systems and the files contained within them, and tends to target older versions of Windows software.
