University Pays Hackers $20,000 to get back its Ransomware Infected Files

“Recently, the University of Calgary in Alberta paid a ransom of $20,000 to decrypt their computer systems’ files and regain access to its own email system after getting hit by a ransomware infection.
The University fell victim to ransomware last month, when the malware installed itself on computers, encrypted all documents and demanded $20,000 in Bitcoins to recover the data.”
