Chapter 1: The Unexpected Lockout

The evening sun cast long shadows across your room as you powered up your laptop, eager to finish that project that is due in just two days. The screen glowed to life, but instead of showing your familiar desktop background, you got a chilling message:


“Your files have been encrypted. Pay $500 USD within 48 hours or lose your data forever.”


A sinking feeling settled in the pit of your stomach. All of your work, family photos, and personal files were on that laptop. You thought 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.

Option A: Stop, think, and research your options.
Option B: Pay the money and ask for your files back.
