8. Don’t let the computer virus kill you
Ransomware is a kind of virus which can lock down the victim’s computer without breaking the data and has the power to hide all the data on their hard drive. It does not need the password; it can get into the victim’s computer by its own. Once this virus attacks, it is impossible to recover. This program usually displays a message on the victim’s computer’s screen alerting them that they have committed a crime for which they need to pay a huge amount of money, or else, they will never get back their data. In Romania, a man of 36 was attacked by Ransomware where he believed that the police had locked down his computer. The displayed message threatened him with 11 years of imprisonment. The man ended up killing his own son, and hanged himself to death.
