For the last month or so, you would have seen various PIN & PAY adverts, airing over the radio, newspapers or on the bank’s webpage, drawing Malaysians’ attention for the compulsory use of PIN-enabled credit/debit card from 1st July. This somehow rekindled my memory back to 2010, on my very first trip to Zhuhai, China. Curious to know?
What is Ransomware?
The name “Ransomware” comes from the combination of two words Ransom and Malware. It is a malware that holds your PC or files for “ransom” either by locking your PC (called Lockers) or encrypting your files in your PC (called Encryptors).
