Protect Yourself from Ransomware

Ransomware cases are on the rise lately. Computers infected with ransomware can prevent user from accessing their machines, encrypt files, or  block apps from running. To minimize the risks of being infected with ransomware, you should:

  1. Back up your data frequently

School projects, assignments, and other important materials should be back up often on external storage or to a trusted online service. The only solution to wipe off the malicious program from your computer is to re-install your computer system. This will minimize your data loss if your computer is infected with ransomware.

  1. Enable your browser(s) popup blocker

Popup is a common method used to infect computer with malicious programs. If a popup appears, do close the popup immediately. Popular browsers such as Chrome and Firefox have in-built popup blocker so it is encouraged to switch on that security feature.

  1. Beware of email attachments, links and suspicious websites

Do not click on links inside emails or websites with suspicious content. It is best to search for more information before clicking on them. Harmful programs can be downloaded to your computer when you clicked on the given link or by visiting the website.
