What does ransomware do

Ransomware does not need complex spread methods, and infection usually occurs through spam email. All malware developers have to do is attach an infected file to an email and send it to unsuspecting users. When you open the the file attached to the email, the file-encrypting malware downloads onto the PC. If you are someone who opens all emails and attachments you receive, your system might be put at risk. Familiarize yourself with how to spot secure and infected emails, look for grammatical errors and Dear Sir or Mada, used instead of your name. The sender actively urging you to open the attachment is a big red flag. Just be cautious of email attachments and before you open them, guarantee they are non-dangerous. We must also warn you to stop obtaining software from non-legitimate websites. Only rely on official websites with secure downloads.

Promptly upon arriving, the file-encoding malicious software will start encrypting your files. Your images, documents and other files will no longer be openable.

Having backup would have saved you from a lot of issues, if you had it prior to encoding, you could just eliminate Spartacus Ransomware and restore files from there.
