MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., Sept. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, PC Matic released a new television commercial titled "I Hate Ransomware." The commercial, in response to the ransomware attacks that continue to wreak havoc on homes, businesses, and governments across the United States, is narrated by the following script:
> What's ransomware?
> Ransomware is a computer virus that enters through a phony email.
> Hidden in the email is the ransomware that tricks you to click it.
> Ransomware's a bully!
> The ransomware encrypts your most valuable files including documents, photos, and videos.
> Wait. What's encrypt mean?
> Encryption means your files are stolen, and the only way to get them back is to pay the ransom.
> Seriously? I hate ransomware.
> Antivirus should block and prevent ransomware. Too often, it doesn't.
> I really hate ransomware.
> Antivirus is based on an old technology called the blacklist. But there is hope. PC Matic developed newer whitelist technology that stops ransomware.
> Yeah! But I still hate ransomware.
> We hate ransomware too.
