Minotaur Ransomware is an encryption ransomware Trojan designed to hold victims' files hostage in order to demand payment of a ransom. Minotaur Ransomware reaches victims' computers through corrupted attachments, often contained in phishing messages, which use social engineering techniques to trick users into opening the infected file. The attachments used to transmit Minotaur Ransomware typically take the form of Microsoft Office files containing compromised embedded macros, which download and install Minotaur Ransomware on the victim's computer.
