Ransomware

Ransomware is a form of malware in which rogue software code effectively holds a user's computer hostage until a "ransom" fee is paid.  Access to the user's computers files are blocked, often by encrypting them.  Most ransomware attacks are the result of clicking on an infected email attachment or visiting hacked or malicious websites.
