Ransomware is a form of malware that encrypts a victim’s files. The attacker then demands a ransom from the victim to restore access to the data upon payment.
Users are shown instructions for how to pay a fee to get the decryption key. The costs can range from a few hundred dollars to thousands, payable to cybercriminals in Bitcoin.

Something is wrong is the latest Crime Stoppers province-wide campaign which focuses on meth dealers and traffickers in Manitoba. Through this initiative, police agencies are hoping to identify and stop methamphetamine dealers and traffickers.
“Law enforcement can not win this battle on their own,” said Paul Johnson, chair, Winnipeg Crime Stoppers.
“They need everyone’s help to provide the information they need to stop the flow of methamphetamine into our communities. Every piece of information — no matter how trivial — is important. The three Crime Stoppers programs are proud to be part of that community to create a ‘made-in-Manitoba solution’ to address this crisis.”
If you have information on a crime, call Winnipeg Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (204-786-8477). For residents living outside of the city of Winnipeg please call 1-800-222-8477. Callers never have to reveal their identity. If your tip is helpful, you are eligible to receive an award up to $2000 cash! All awards are paid out using a system designed to maintain your anonymity.
