Ransomware is a family of malware that ranks as one of the most dangerous of modern times. It is not a matter of how you will be infected, but a matter of when.

In this presentation, we will look at some of the ransomwares in the wild and how they propagate and infect machines. We will also look at different variations and strategies that they employ as well as dig deeper into some of their code to get a glimpse on how malicious they are.

Though it is hard to get rid of them once they are already in your system, we will try to discuss some preventative steps on how to minimize their effect.
