Crypto-ransomware – the program that encrypts data and demands a ransom for its decryption. One of the best ways to recognize this type of ransomware is when files, documents, pictures, or videos cannot be read and encrypted. It can also be delivered through exploitation kits, which are sets of tools planted by attackers on various sites.
Locker Ransomware – it acts similar to crypto, but completely blocks the infected device, not just certain files. You may find yourself a victim of this ransomware if you can’t connect to your device or use it for basic tasks without a threatening redemption message appearing on your screen.
