What does file-encrypting malware do

The most likely way you got the ransomware was via spam email. Malevolent software makers add contaminated files to an email and send it to to hundreds or even thousands of users. As soon as the file attached is opened, the ransomware will download onto the system. This is why opening every single email attachment you get is pretty dangerous. You must learn the signs of a malicious email, otherwise you will have to deal with a dangerous one sooner or later. A huge red flag is the sender pressuring you to open the file attached to the email. In general, be vary as any email attachment you get could be malware.

What the file-encrypting malware will do is, it will use difficult encoding algorithms to encode your data so that you can no longer access them. Your images, documents and other files will no longer be openable. A ransom note will then be placed, and it should inform you about what has occurred. In exchange for data recovery, you are asked to pay. The biggest issue that you could happen upon when dealing with crooks is that you have no way of predicting their behavior. Therefore, giving them money isn’t a good idea. Take into account that even after payment, you could not get the decryption program. Do not trust hackers to provide you a decoding software, they may just take your money.
