RanSim will simulate 22 ransomware infection scenarios and one crypto mining infection scenario, and it will tell you if a workstation is vulnerable to either of these infections.

The following is how RanSim operates:

Ransomware Is a Type of Malware
Ransomware is described as malicious software that locks users out of their computers or prevents them from accessing their files unless a quantity of money, or ransom, is paid to the perpetrators. A ransomware assault results in system downtime and data loss, as well as the possibility of intellectual property theft; in some industries, such an attack is considered a data breach.
