Fave antivirus, a webcam of yourself showing up on your screen, being told you must pay to have the offending software removed….. all of this is ransomware. You get it because you use your computer. You think you are doing the right thing by accepting an offer to clean your computer and WHAM!!! you get ransomware……. You can never be too careful. Keep your computer (MAC is also vulnerable) updated and follow solid security principles…… keeping antivirus up dated, not installing every Facebook game you see, not believing the hoaxes and being smart.
