Once it carries out the encryption process, a ransom note will appear and you will be demanded to pay for a method to decrypt data. You will possibly be requested to pay between tens and thousands of dollars, depending on what ransomware you have, and how much you value your data.

Data encrypting malicious software spread methods

Users normally get data encoding malware by opening infected files attached to emails, tapping on malicious advertisements and downloading from untrustworthy sources. That doesn’t mean creators won’t use methods that require more skill.

If you remember opening a file which you got from an apparently real email in the spam folder, that may be how the data encrypting malware managed to infect. Once the infected attachment is opened, the data encoding malware will be able to begin the encoding process. Those emails could seem to be urgent, usually covering money topics, which is why users open them in the first place. In addition to grammatical mistakes, if the sender, who ought to definitely know your name, uses greetings such as Dear User/Customer/Member and puts strong pressure on you to open the attachment, you have to be vary. Your name would be inserted into the email automatically if the sender was from some legitimate company whose email you need to open. Expect to see company names like Amazon or PayPal used in those emails, as familiar names would make people trust the email more. If you remember clicking on some dubious advertisements or downloading files from suspicious pages, that’s also how the infection might have managed to enter. Compromised pages might be harboring malicious advertisements, which if engaged with could cause malware to download. It is likely you downloaded the data encrypting malware accidentally when it was concealed as some kind of software/file on an untrustworthy download platform, which is why you should stick to valid ones. You should never download anything, whether it is software or updates, from advertisements or pop-ups. If an application needed to update itself, it wouldn’t alert you via browser, it would either update without your intervention, or alert you through the software itself.

What does it do?

The reason ransomware is classified as very damaging is due to its ability to encode your files and permanently prevent you from accessing them. Once it is inside, it will take minutes, if not seconds to locate its target file types and encode them. If other signs aren’t obvious, you can notice the ransomware when weird file extension appear added to your files. Some ransomware do use strong encryption algorithms for file encryption, which is why it may be impossible to recover files without having to pay. You ought to then see a ransom note, which should explain the situation. You will be offered a way to decrypt files using a decryption tool which you can purchase from them, but that isn’t the suggested option. By paying, you would be putting a lot of faith in crooks, the people who are to blame for locking your files in the first place. The ransom money would also likely go towards funding future ransomware projects. The easily made money is regularly luring crooks to the business, which is estimated to have made $1 billion in 2016. We suggest you consider investing the money requested into some kind of backup option. And you would not be risking file loss if this type of threat entered your device again. We would advise you do not pay attention to the requests, and if the infection is still inside on your system, uninstall Suri ransomware, in case you require assistance, you may use the instructions we supply below this article.
