The Game Begins: The Unexpected Lockout
The evening sun is casting long shadows across your room as you power up your laptop, eager to finish a project that is due in just two days. The screen glows to life, but instead of showing your familiar desktop background, you get a chilling message:
“Your files have been encrypted. Pay $500 USD within 48 hours or lose your data forever.”
A sinking feeling settles in the pit of your stomach. All of your work, family photos, and personal files are on that laptop. You think back to the news stories about ransomware gangs making millions by locking people out of their computers and demanding money for the decryption key. You didn't think it would ever happen to you.
Taking a deep breath, you try to decide what to do next.
