Abstract: Ransomware is the new malware which has fascinated public with innovative form of attacks. The Ransomware not only attacks the systems and makes them inaccessible, it also demands certain ransom payments from the victims. There are numerous instances of Ransomware such as Cryptolocker, Reveton, CryptoWall, Fusob etc. The Ransomware may be broadly classified as Encrypting, Non-Encrypting, Leakware and Mobile.
