Ransomware is a form of malware that encrypts your files. After the attack gets into your system, the attacker demands a ransom from you in order for them to restore your access to the data.

Ransomware attacks are used by cybercriminals to intrude on computers and gain access to confidential data, and the data is ultimately held onto for ransom to extort as much money as possible from the owners.

Dual-channel memory, sometimes referred to as multi-channel memory, is a DDR, DDR2, or DDR3 chipset on a computer’s motherboard providing random access memory (RAM) with two dedicated data channels to enhance throughput.
