Ransomware attacks occur when a user opens a file that results in a lockdown of other files or data. Ransomware attacks typically come by phishing, whereby ransomware is disguised as a legitimate file that a user could believe to be genuine. The user is then tricked in to opening it and the ransomware infects the machine.
