Ransomware, for those that haven’t yet learned about the spreading threat, is a form of cyber attack that has serious consequences for users that fall into a ransomware trap. There are several ways in which your computer can get infested with ransomware. The most common way is through false software advertisement. The victim might think they are downloading a cool game or a music player when in reality they are downloading the system infection.

To spare you of technical chatter, let’s just say that your computer is taken hostage literally, point in which the attacker reveals through a message what is going on. The only way to be set free is if the user pays a monetary fee, usually through digital transaction. Most ransomware attackers prefer the growing digital currency known as Bitcoin, but it’s not a rule set in stone. Everyone can agree that ransomware is not something you want on your computer, so it’s a pretty good idea to protect yourself against such threats.

Enter RansomFree

The company known as Cyberseason has released a solution for the ransomware problem many were forced to deal with, and others are scared by. The software is called RansomFree and it is a free tool that combats ransomware in such a way that untrained users will have no difficulty in using it. While other software would require you to have some basic knowledge about ransomware and anti-ransomware protection, RansomFree is different.

The tool just needs to be installed, after which users can return to their daily routine. It can’t get any easier than leaving the software to do its job and look for irregularities. It will monitor your system and keep an eye for unusual behavior which can possibly be a symptom of ransomware. The program has over 40 infection types to base its reports on, so you can expect accurate results.

If you have at least Windows 7, you can go ahead and get the anti-ransomware tool for free.
