new security software
Bitdefender Anti-Ransomware is a new product by security company Bitdefender to protect Windows PCs against several ransomware families.
Ransomware describes a specific type of malicious software that has been designed to force users to pay ransom — usually in the form of Bitcoin — by encrypting data or locking the screen, and threatening users into action.
There are ways users can protect their data against ransomware attacks. This begins with the right security software but does not end there. Regular, offsite backups, can be important as well.
