Ransomware has become a significant problem and its impact is getting worse. It has now become a lucrative business as it is being offered as a service. Unlike other security issues, the effect of ransomware is irreversible and difficult to stop. This research has analysed existing ransomware classifications and its detection and prevention methods. Due to the difficulty in categorizing the steps none of the existing methods can stop ransomware. Ransomware families are identified and classified from the year 1989 to 2017 and surprisingly there are not much difference in the pattern. This paper concludes with a brief discussion about the findings and future work of this research.
