Victim of a Ransomware Attack

11/13/2017 |

Fiction: If you're the victim of a ransomware attack, you should report it to law enforcement.

Fact: Unfortunately, there's very little that the FBI—or any other law enforcement agency—can do to resolve an individual ransomware incident. In fact, you're frequently limited to two choices: either you pay the ransom or you don't. Reporting the crime can help put it on the authorities' radar, however, so you won't lose anything by saying something.
