How to strike ransomware out

It’s important to avoid clicking on links inside unsolicited emails, and do not open any email attachments unless you specifically asked someone to send it to you. If you’re a small business owner, this should be part of your employee handbook. Just keep in mind that employees may fail to adhere to the policy or simply be fooled by a well-targeted phishing attack. Many email providers are beginning to block certain types of attachments because they’re often used to spread ransomware. For email, Google’s Gmail service now blocks JavaScript (.js) files. Other file extensions to watch out for include .exe, .jse, .ade and .adp.
