Study on Prevention and Solution of Ransomware Attack
The development of science and technology in this era brought many advantages for peoples, organizations, enterprises, and companies merely a lot of cyber threats are occurring nowadays. Ransomware is one of the families of malicious software that spread quickly and cause a critical impact around the world. Ransomware attacks the victim by infecting the malicious file into the device; they will encrypt and deny the victim to access it. A ransom demand message will prompt the user so that they will gain the money anonymously. The victims are only allowed to access after pay the demand using crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin. There is a lot of reason that cause the ransomware attack around the world, for example, the vulnerability of the system. Otherwise, the weaknesses of security knowledge also become one of the causes. However, many preventions allow the user to avoid the ransomware propagate but the system is not fully free from the ransomware attack. Thus, a lot of solutions are giving out by the researcher to overcome the problem after the attack.
