Malware is a worldwide epidemic and studies suggest that with the evolution of internet it is getting even worse. There is a new virus implemented every minute and various relevant strategies and tactics have been proposed to alleviate and eradicate cyber threats. Therefore, major concern for the researchers today is to detect and mitigate such programs. In this paper an effort has been made to propose a system which will detect some dangerous viruses and some features of the recently emerged new form of malware in cyberspace known as Ransomware. Imposing serious threats to information assets protection ransomware victimizes the internet users by hijacking user files, encrypting them, then demanding a ransom to be paid in exchange of the decryption key. The proposed program aims to scan the system to get hold of all vulnerable files present on the system and to detect the malicious one’s and remove them.
