Here’s a collection of 25 ransomware screenshots. Here you can see how the interface varies, but the demands are very similar. We see a range of payment methods from Bitcoin, MoneyPak, and Paypal. Notice the psychological tricks they play on your emotions. A couple ransomware screenshots declare they took a photo and video of you using your webcam as evidence. Others use a countdown timer promising the key will be destroyed and you’re out of luck. How would you feel if you saw one of these on your computer screen? Remember, if you have backups of your data, you’ll never have to worry about paying a ransom. Also keep in mind, there’s some steps to take if you do become a victim of ransomware.
WannaCry ransomware screen shot. AKA WannaCrypt, WanaCrypt0r, Wana Decrypt0r 2.0, WCRY, WNCRY. The WannaCry ransomware attack was a worldwide cyberattack by the WannaCry, a ransomware cryptoworm, which targets computers running the Microsoft Windows operating system by encrypting data and demanding ransom payments in the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. This ransomware has a unique decrypt button allowing victims to decrypt a sample of files. Perhaps building trust that the victim’s files will be decrypted upon payment. As of 19 May 2017, the attacks have slowed down and is presumed to be extinct. Though, isolated reports are coming from the countries, already affected by the ransomware attack. Unconfirmed sources have also alleged that a newer and a more powerful version of the virus would be released and infect the major computer systems all over the world.
