Sometimes old becomes new again. Such is the case with ransomware attacks, which have become popular once more.

First released in 1989, ransomware infects a system and 'locks out' the user from accessing the device or files on it. Only when the victim agrees to pay a ransom, usually in the form of bitcoins, can the system be unlocked and accessed again.
