Detection and Mitigation of Virus Ransomware
AbstractIn this era of globalization, ransomware is not something strange. It is a necessity to know about the dangers of this ransomware virus. Ransomware is a kind of malware that encrypts files on a victim’s computer and requires payment before restoration. It has become a very serious cyber threat nowadays. The basic idea of ransomware was presented in the form of a cryptovirus in 1995. However, it was considered as merely a conceptual topic since then for over a decade. In 2017, ransomware has become a reality, with several famous cases of ransomware having compromised important computer systems worldwide. The main purpose of this project is to develop software that can detect and mitigate the ransomware virus. This project helps to secure users’ data from being infected by the ransomware. At the same time, this software also has functionality to mitigate the suspicious process that have been assumed as a ransomware virus.
Submission of an original manuscript to the Journal of Computing Technologies and Creative Content (JTeC) will be taken to mean that it represents original work not previoussly published, that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication. All submitted articles that are published by JTeC cannot be published anywhere by the authors unless with the permission by JTeC Editors. JTeC reserves the right to the publications of the articles it published, and reserves the right to reuse the articles elsewhere for academic purposes, while still retaining the names of the original authors with the original articles.
JTeC takes the stance that the publication of scholarly research is meant to disseminate knowledge and in a not-for-profit regime, benefits neither publisher nor author financially. It sees itself as having obligation to its author and to society to make content available online now that the technology allows for such possibility.
