I would like to add a tip on how to protect yourself from ransomware.
If you're a small business owner managing your own website, using plugins are often easier than having a developer make changes on your website. But some types of ransomware come from free or old widgets or plugins. So as much as possible, avoid downloading and using plugins that don't come from reputable developers. See if they respond to user comments and check the reviews. If they don't respond, if the plugin hasn't been updated, or not a lot of people has downloaded and used it, it would be best to stay away from it.
That's a great tip! The same can be said for the use of apps and browser extensions.
Thank you for sharing your insight.
