Is this a serious infection

Dont_Worry ransomware will encrypt your files, because it’s ransomware. It is a very severe threat, and it might lead to serious issues, like permanent data loss. Due to this, and the fact that getting infected is quite easy, data encrypting malware is considered to be very dangerous. If you have it, you probably opened a spam email attachment, pressed on an infected advert or fell for a fake download. Once it completes the encryption process, victims are asked to pay a ransom, and if they comply, supposedly, crooks will help them recover files. You’ll possibly be requested to pay a minimum of a couple hundred dollars, it depends on what ransomware you have, and how valuable your files are. Even if a minor amount is asked of you, we do not recommend paying. Considering cyber crooks aren’t obligated to recover your data, it is probable they’ll just take your money. If you were left with still encrypted files after paying, you would definitely not be the first one. We advise buy backup, instead. You will encounter different backup options but we are sure you can find one that’s right for you. Erase Dont_Worry ransomware and then proceed to file restoration if you had backup prior to contaminating your machine. These types of contaminations will not go away in the near future, so you need to be ready. To safeguard a machine, one must always be on the lookout for possible malware, becoming informed about how to avoid them.

How does data encrypting malware spread

Even though there are special cases, most ransomware like to use basic spread methods, such as spam email, infected adverts and downloads. Methods that require more ability could be used too, however.

Since file encrypting malware may be obtained through email attachments, try and remember if you have recently obtained a weird file from an email. All criminals distributing the file encoding malware have to do is attach an infected file to an email, send it to potential victims, and once the file is opened, the device is infected. Criminals could make those emails very convincing, normally using sensitive topics like money and taxes, which is why we aren’t shocked that those attachments are opened. When you’re dealing with emails from senders you don’t recognize, be vary of specific signs that it may be malicious, such as mistakes in grammar, strong encouragement to open the attachment. A company whose email you need to definitely open would use your name instead of the common greeting. Don’t be shocked to see names such as Amazon or PayPal used, as that would make people trust the email much more. You might have also gotten the infection via some other ways, like malicious advertisements or bogus downloads. If you are someone who interacts with ads while visiting weird sites, it is not really surprising that you got your computer contaminated. It is probable you obtained the ransomware accidentally when it was concealed as some kind of software/file on an unreliable download platform, which is why you need to stick to valid ones. One thing to keep in mind is to never download anything, whether software or an update, from pop-up or any other kinds of adverts. If an application had to update itself, it would do it itself or alert you, but never via browser.

What does it do?

Because ransomware is able to permanently lock you out of your data, it’s considered to be one of the most dangerous malware out there. It may take mere minutes for it to find the files it wants and encrypt them. Weird file extensions will be added to all affected files, and they’ll commonly indicate the name of ransomware. Strong encryption algorithms will be used to lock your files, which could make decoding files for free very hard or even impossible. You should then see a ransom note, which should explain the situation. The note will demand that you buy a decryption utility to recover files, but paying is not the best choice for a couple of reasons. Complying with the requests doesn’t guarantee file decryption because cyber crooks might just take your money, leaving your files locked. The ransom money would also likely go towards financing future ransomware or other malicious software projects. Reportedly, ransomware made an estimated $1 billion in 2016, and such a successful business will just attract more and more people. We suggest you consider investing into backup with that money instead. In case of a similar situation again, you could just ignore it and not worry about losing your data. Uninstall Dont_Worry ransomware if it’s still present, instead of giving into requests. These types threats can be avoided, if you know how they spread, so try to familiarize with its distribution methods, at least the basics.
