How does ransomware spread

Commonly, most ransomware tend to use malicious email attachments and ads, and false downloads to infect systems, even though you can definitely find exceptions. However, it is possible for ransomware to use methods that require more ability.

If you recall opening a file which you obtained from an apparently legitimate email in the spam folder, that might be why your files are currently encrypted. Once the corrupted file is opened, the ransomware will be able to begin encoding your files. It’s not really surprising that people open the attachments, seeing as criminals occasionally put in a decent amount of work in order make the emails quite convincing, mentioning money-related issues and similar sensitive topics, which people are concerned with. The use of basic greetings (Dear Customer/Member), prompts to open the file added, and many grammatical mistakes are what you need to look out for when dealing with emails from unknown senders that contain files. Your name would be automatically inserted into an email if it was a legitimate company whose email ought to be opened. Don’t be surprised to see names like Amazon or PayPal used, as that would make users trust the email much more. It is also not outside the realms of possibility that when visiting a suspicious site, you clicked on some ad that was dangerous, or obtained something from an unreliable web page. Compromised pages could be hosting malicious advertisements, which if engaged with may cause malware to download. Avoid untrustworthy sites for downloading, and stick to valid ones. Sources such as advertisements and pop-ups are infamous for being untrustworthy sources, so avoid downloading anything from them. If a program had to update itself, it would do it automatically or notify you, but never via browser.

What happened to your files?

An infection leading to permanent data loss is not an impossible scenario, which is why a data encoding malware is believed to be such a damaging infection. And the encryption process is rather quick, it is only a matter of minutes, if not seconds, for all your essential files to become encrypted. Weird file extensions will appear attached to all affected files, and they’ll usually indicate the name of ransomware. Your files will be locked using strong encryption algorithms, which may be impossible to break. If you don’t understand what has happened, everything will become clear when a ransom note appears. You’ll be offered a decoding utility but paying for it isn’t something we advise doing. Remember that you are dealing with crooks, and what is stopping them from simply taking your money. The money you give them would also possibly go towards financing future ransomware or other malicious program activities. Reportedly, ransomware made $1 billion in 2016, and such large sums of money will just lure more people who wish to steal from others. Investing into backup instead of complying with the requests would be a much wiser idea. If this kind of situation reoccurred, you could just ignore it and not worry about potential data loss. Simply ignore the demands and terminate a800 Ransomware. And try to familiarize with how to prevent these types of infection in the future, so that this does not happen.
