Is this a severe infection

AutoTRON Ransomware file-encoding malware, more commonly known as ransomware, will encrypt your files. You have got a very severe infection on your hands, and it could lead to severe trouble, like permanent data loss. Also it is quite easy to get the infection. People most often get infected via spam emails, infected ads or fake downloads. Soon after contamination, the encoding process begins, and afterwards, criminals will demand that you pay a specific sum of money for data recovery. Depending on which ransomware you have, the sum asked will differ. We do not recommend paying, no matter how little you are asked to pay. There is nothing stopping crooks from taking your money, giving nothing in return. There are a lot of accounts of people receiving nothing after giving into with the demands. Backup would be a much better investment, because you would not endangering your data if the situation were to reoccur. You will encounter different backup options but we are sure you can find one that’s right for you. For those who did take the time to make copies of the data prior to infection, simply remove AutoTRON Ransomware and then proceed to recover files from where you are keeping them. This isn’t the last time you’ll get contaminated with some kind of malware, so you need to prepare. If you want to remain safe, you have to become familiar with possible contaminations and how to shield your device from them.

How does ransomware spread

Users normally infect their computers with file encoding malware through infected email attachments, pressing on malicious advertisements and downloading from unreliable sources. That does not mean more advanced cyber crooks won’t use methods that need more skill.

It’s possible you opened a malicious email attachment, which would prompt the data encoding malware to launch. All crooks distributing the ransomware have to do is add a corrupted file to an email, send it to potential victims, and once the file is opened, the system is corrupted. Those emails could be written in a convincing way, often talking about money or related issues, which is why people open them in the first place. The use of basic greetings (Dear Customer/Member), strong pressure to open the attachment, and many grammatical errors are what you ought to be caution of when dealing with emails that contain files. A company whose email is important enough to open would use your name instead of the general greeting. Crooks also tend to use big names like Amazon so that people become more trusting. It may have also been the case that you engaged with an infected advert when browsing dubious web pages, or downloaded something from an unreliable source. Compromised websites could be hosting malicious advertisements, which if pressed could cause malicious downloads. And stick to official websites when it comes to downloads. One thing to bear in mind is to never acquire anything, whether programs or an update, from pop-up or any other kinds of adverts. If an application was needed to be updated, it would notify you through the program itself, and not via your browser, and usually they update themselves anyway.

What does it do?

An infection leading to permanent data loss isn’t an impossible scenario, which is what makes ransomware so damaging. File encryption doesn’t take long, a data encoding malicious program has a list of target files and locates all of them immediately. All files that have been encrypted will have an extension attached to them. Ransomware typically uses strong encryption algorithms to make files inaccessible. When encryption is finished, you’ll get a ransom note, which is intended to explain to you how you should proceed. The ransom note will demand that you pay for a decryption program but our advice would be to ignore the demands. Hackers may just take your money without giving you a decryptor. Your money would also finance their future criminal projects. The easily made money is regularly luring cyber criminals to the business, which reportedly made more than $1 billion in 2016. Like we mentioned above, buying backup would be wiser, as copies of your files would always be accessible. And if a similar threat occurred again, you wouldn’t be risking losing your files as you could just access them from backup. Just pay no attention to the requests and remove AutoTRON Ransomware. These kinds threats can be avoided, if you know how they spread, so try to familiarize with its distribution ways, in detail.
