People most often get infected via spam email attachments, malicious adverts or fake downloads. As soon as the file encoding malware is finished encoding your files, a ransom note will pop up, requesting money for a tool to decrypt your files. You will likely be demanded to pay between tens and thousands of dollars, it depends on what ransomware you have, and how valuable your files are. Whatever sum is demanded of you, consider every possible consequence before you do. Think about whether you’ll actually get your files back after payment, considering there is nothing preventing crooks from simply taking your money. We would not be surprised if you were left with undecrypted data, and you would certainly not be the only one. It would be a better idea to get backup with that money.

How does ransomware spread

Users typically corrupt their computers with data encrypting malicious program through malicious files attached to emails, pressing on infected advertisements and downloading from untrustworthy sources. Methods that require more ability can be used as well, however.

Recall if you have recently opened an attachment from an email which landed in the spam folder. The method includes creators adding the ransomware infected file to an email, which gets sent to many people. You can normally discover those emails in spam but some users check the folder for emails that might have accidentally landed there, and if the file encoding malware email is written at least somewhat convincingly, they open it, without thinking about why it landed in spam. The use of basic greetings (Dear Customer/Member), strong pressure to open the attachment, and evident mistakes in grammar are what you need to look out for when dealing with emails that contain files. To make it more clear, if someone whose attachment ought to be opened sends you an email, they would use your name, not common greetings, and it would not end up in the spam folder. You might see company names such as Amazon or PayPal used in those emails, as known names would make users trust the email more. It is also likely that you pressed on some malicious ad when on a dubious web page, or downloaded a file or software from some dubious source. Compromised web pages may be hosting infected advertisements so stop pressing on them. Avoid untrustworthy web pages for downloading, and stick to official ones. One thing to bear in mind is to never acquire anything, whether programs or an update, from strange sources, such as advertisements. If an application was needed to be updated, you would be alerted through the application itself, not through your browser, and most update without your interference anyway.

What happened to your files?

Researchers regularly caution about how dangerous data encoding malicious software can be, most importantly, its ability to permanently encrypt data. It has a list of target files, and it’ll take a short time to find and encrypt them all. If not for other signs, the weird file extension attached to the files will make everything clear. Your files will be locked using strong encryption algorithms, which are not always possible to break. When all target files have been locked, a ransom note ought to appear, with information about what has occurred. The note will offer you a paid decryption tool but giving into the demands is not suggested. By paying, you would be trusting cyber criminals, the people who are to blame for your file encryption in the first place. Furthermore, you would be providing financial support for the cyber crooks’s future projects. The easily made money is constantly luring more and more people to the business, which reportedly made more than $1 billion in 2016. Consider buying good backup instead. Situations where your files are jeopardized might occur all the time, and you wouldn’t have to worry about file loss if you had backup.

And attempt to familiarize with how to prevent these types of infection in the future, so that this does not happen.
