Once such a weakness has been found, the Ransomware virus infiltrates your PC, and you normally encounter a complicated process of encryption of the files you have used most regularly. Indeed, this is a horrible possibility, since these two viruses are very harmful separately. However, in case they are combined, the outcome might be awful beyond words.
