Don’t restart your computer after a ransomware attack


Recommended Posts


According to research conducted by a team of security researchers from Symantec in association with Stanford and New York Universities, it is better not to restart a computer after it suffered a ransomware infection as it can propel the malware infection further.


So, experts are urging the victims to either hibernate their infected PCs or power them down as it helps save a copy of the memory where usually most of the ransomware strains store their encryption keys. Symantec Survey says that experts are recommending against PC reboots as it does worse than good.
