Ransomware is a type of threat which blocks access to the computer system that it infects, and asks for ransom paid to the developers, in order for the lock to be removed. Some forms of ransomware encrypt files (usually documents) on the system's hard drive (cryptoviral), some simply lock the system and display messages intended to make user pay.
Latest forms of winlock ransomware block users access to Safe Mode. Latest versions of cryptolockers use BitCoin or third-rate payment systems which make it hard for police to track them. Stronghold AntiMalware successfully removes latest ransomware thanks to it's Hybrid Cloud technology.
