Federal Bureau of Investigation, Ransomware on the Rise: FBI and Partners Working to Combat This Cyber Threat (Jan. 20, 2015) (full-text).

Overview Edit

Ransomware scams involve a type of malware that infects computers and restricts users' access to their files or threatens the permanent destruction of their information unless a ransom — anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars — is paid. The site offers information on the FBI's and federal, international, and private-sector partners' proactive steps to neutralize some of the more significant ransomware scams through law enforcement actions against major botnets.
