What is Ransomware?

Ransomware comprises a class of malwarewhich restricts access to the computer system that it infects, and demands a ransompaid to the creator of the malware in order for the restriction to be removed. Some forms of ransomware encrypt files on the system's hard drive (cryptoviral extortion), while some may simply lock the system and display messages intended to coax the user into paying.
