Additionally, contaminating a computer is quite easy, therefore making data encrypting malicious program a highly damaging contamination. If you have it, it’s quite possible you opened a spam email attachment, pressed on an infected advert or fell for a fake download. After the encryption process is successfully finished, it will ask you to pay a ransom for a for a method to decode files. The sum of money demanded varies from ransomware to ransomware, some demand $1000 or more, some may settle with $100. Think carefully before giving into the demands, even if it asks for very little money. Take into account that these are crooks you are dealing with and they may not give you anything in exchange for the payment. There are plenty of accounts of users getting nothing after complying with the requests. This might easily occur again, so consider buying backup, instead of complying with the demands. We’re certain you will find a good option as there are many to pick from. Remove Bomber ransomware and then access your backup, if it was made before the infection, to recover files.

How does file encoding malware spread

Normally, the majority of data encrypting malicious program use infected email attachments and advertisements, and fake downloads to spread, even though there are exceptions. However, more advanced crooks will use more sophisticated methods.

It’s possible you downloaded an infected file added to an email, which would prompt the ransomware to initiate. You open the email, download and open the attachment and the file encrypting malware is now able to start the encoding process. It’s not rare for those emails to contain money-related topics, which alarms users into opening it. The use of basic greetings (Dear Customer/Member), strong encouraging to open the attachment, and many grammatical errors are what you need to be caution of when dealing with emails with attached files. To explain, if someone important would send you a file, they would would know your name and wouldn’t use common greetings, and you wouldn’t need to look for the email in the spam folder. Expect to come across company names like Amazon or PayPal used in those emails, as a familiar name would make the email seem more legitimate. You might have also gotten the threat via compromised advertisements or bogus downloads. Compromised sites may be hosting malicious advertisements, which if pressed might trigger malicious program to download. You could have also obtained the data encrypting malicious software hidden as something else on an unreliable download platform, which is why you need to stick to valid ones. You should never download anything from adverts, whether they are pop-ups or banners or any other type. If a program needed to update itself, it wouldn’t notify you via browser, it would either update without your interference, or send you a notification through the software itself.

What does it do?

Because file encrypting malware is able to permanently lock you out of your data, it’s classified to be a very harmful infection. It has a list of files types it would target, and it’ll take a short time to find and encrypt them all. Strange file extensions will appear attached to all affected files, from which you can judge which ransomware you are dealing with. While not necessarily seen in all cases, some file encoding malware do use strong encryption algorithms for file encryption, which is why it may be impossible to recover files for free. In case you don’t understand what has happened, a ransom note should explain everything. The ransomware note will encourage you to buy a decryption program, but buying it’s not suggested. By paying, you would be putting a lot of faith in crooks, the very people accountable for locking your data. And it’s probable that the money will go towards other malware projects, so you would be providing financial support for their future projects. When people give into the requests, they are making ransomware a more and more successful business, which already earned $1 billion in 2016, and that will attract many people to it. Buying backup would be a better idea. In case of a similar situation again, you could just remove it and not worry about possible data loss. Just pay no attention to the requests and uninstall Bomber ransomware. And In the future, we hope you will try to avoid these types of threats by familiarizing with how they are distributed.
