OphionLocker Description

OphionLocker falls under the category of ransomware computer infections. Initially, computer threat specialists discovered that the OphionLocker ransomware is distributed via a malvertising campaign using the RIG Exploit Kit. Once on your system, OphionLocker displays a warning message that asks users to pay a certain amount of money in order to decrypt the locked files. In most cases, threats like OphionLocker are capable of blocking access to programs and files on your PC, and in other cases, it may lock your entire system in order to collect payments. OphionLocker and other similar infections are developed by cybercriminals for the only intention of making profits.
