What is El ordenador se ha bloqueado y todos sus datos se cifran Virus?
The “El ordenador se ha bloqueado y todos sus datos se cifran” virus is classified as ransomware. A bogus notification is the favorite trick of ransomware. Firstly, the ransomware disables multiple kinds of files such as documents, e-mails, database, source code, images, compressed files, etc. in the manner of encryption. As a result, the computer is totally locked. Also, some other kinds of ransomware may reduce availability of the system through modifying configuration system files and disturbing the normal use. And then, this ransomware pretends to be an authoritative institution asking you to pay a fine. The bogus notification alerts the computer can’t be unlocked, if users refuse to do this. Users may easily fall into the snare and pay a fine to cyber criminals due to rushing to use the computer.
