About this threat

Data encrypting malicious program developers target hasty users, as infection usually occurs by opening a malicious email attachment, clicking on a malicious advert or falling for bogus ‘downloads’. After it encodes your data, it will ask that you pay a specific amount of money for a decryptor. $50 or $1000 may be asked of you, depending on which ransomware you have. Whatever you are demanded to pay by this threat, think about every likely outcome before you do. Who is going to stop crooks from simply taking your money, providing nothing in return. If you take the time to look into it, you’ll definitely find accounts of people not recovering data, even after paying. Research backup options, so that if this were to happen again, you wouldn’t risk losing your data. While you will be given a lot of different options, it shouldn’t be hard to find the best option for you. If backup is available, recovering data won’t be a problem. It is crucial that you prepare for all scenarios in these types of situations because you’ll probably get infected again. To keep a device safe, one must always be on the lookout for possible threats, becoming familiar with how to avoid them.

Data encoding malicious software distribution ways

Normally, file encrypting malware is obtained when you open a corrupted email, tap on a malicious ad or download from untrustworthy sources. More elaborate methods can be used as well, however.

Recall if you have recently opened an unusual email attachment. The infected file is added to an email, and then sent out to hundreds of potential victims. Those emails commonly end up in the spam folder but some people think they’re credible and move them to the inbox, thinking it is important. You can expect the file encoding malicious program email to contain a basic greeting (Dear Customer/Member/User etc), grammatical errors, prompts to open the attachment, and the use of an established firm name. Your name would certainly be used in the greeting if it was a legitimate company whose email should be opened. Criminals also like to use big names such as Amazon so that people don’t become distrustful. It is also likely that you pressed on some dangerous advert when on a questionable website, or obtained a file or software from some questionable source. Be very careful about what ads you click on, especially when on suspicious websites. And stick to valid sites when it comes to downloads. One thing to take into consideration is to never download anything, whether software or an update, from strange sources, such as adverts. If a program needed to update itself, it wouldn’t notify you through browser, it would either update automatically, or send you a notification through the program itself.

What happened to your files?

When encoding is finished, a ransom note will appear, which is supposed to explain to you how you should proceed. You’ll be offered a a decryption tool which you can buy from them, but that is not the recommended option. If you are expecting the hackers who encrypted your data in the first place to provide you a decryptor, you may be disappointed, as there is little preventing them from just taking your money. Your money would also support their future criminal projects. The easily made money is constantly attracting crooks to the business, which is estimated to have made more than $1 billion in 2016. Investing into backup instead of complying with the requests would be a much better idea. Situations where your files are jeopardized can happen all the time, but if backup was available, file loss would not be a possibility.
