Once the ransomware invades your PC, it encrypts your machine and freezes all of your documents, photos and music - literally holding it for ransom.
"Spyware" has become one of the greatest threats facing users of the Internet. In its beginning "spyware" basically referred to software that "tracked" a users activities on the internet, in most case without user knowledge or consent. However, over the last several years the term has become somewhat of an umbrella term covering such technologies as unauthorized keylogger, screen scraper, harmful adware, backdoors, Dialers, hijackers, rootkits, downloaders and other technologies.
