About this infection

Com2 Ransomware ransomware is a piece of malicious program that will encode your files. It is a highly severe infection, and it may lead to serious trouble, like permanent file loss. Another reason why data encoding malware is believed to be so harmful is that threat is rather easy to obtain. If your computer is infected, a spam email attachment, a malicious advertisement or a fake download is accountable. Once the ransomware is finished encrypting your files, you will get a ransom note, demanding money in exchange for a tool that would supposedly decode your files. $50 or $1000 might be demanded of you, depending on which ransomware you have. We don’t recommend paying, no matter how little you are asked to pay. Who’s going to stop criminals from just taking your money, without giving you a decoding tool. If you take the time to look into it, you will definitely find accounts of users not recovering data, even after paying. Instead of giving into the requests, it would be wiser to buy backup. We’re certain you can find an option that suits your requirements as there are plenty to select from. And if by chance you do have backup, simply erase Com2 Ransomware before you restore data. It is important to prepare for these types of situations because you’ll probably get infected again. In order to keep a device safe, one should always be on the lookout for potential threats, becoming informed about their spread methods.

How does ransomware spread

Even though you could find exceptions, most file encoding malware prefer to use primitive ways of distribution, which are spam email, malicious advertisements and fake downloads. That does not mean creators will not use elaborate methods.

If you recall opening a file which you obtained from an apparently legitimate email in the spam folder, that could be how the file encrypting malicious program managed to infect. Essentially, all malware authors have to do is add an infected file to an email, and send it to many users. Cyber criminals can make those emails very convincing, normally using topics like money and taxes, which is why it isn’t that shocking that plenty of people open those attachments. The use of basic greetings (Dear Customer/Member), prompts to open the attachment, and evident mistakes in grammar are what you ought to look out for when dealing with emails from unfamiliar senders with added files. To make it more clear, if someone important would send you an attachment, they would use your name, not common greetings, and you would not have to look for the email in spam. You are likely to see company names such as Amazon or PayPal used in those emails, as a familiar name would make the email seem more real. If that isn’t the case, you could have picked up the infection via malicious ads or infected downloads. Be very careful about what advertisements you press on, especially when visiting dubious pages. Avoid downloading from untrustworthy sites, and stick to legitimate ones. You ought to never download anything from ads, whether they’re pop-ups or banners or any other kind. If a program was needed to be updated, it would alert you via the application itself, and not via your browser, and generally they update themselves anyway.

What happened to your files?

Data encrypting malware may result in your files being permanently encoded, which is what makes it such a damaging threat. Once it’s inside, it will take a short while to locate its target file types and encrypt them. Weird file extensions will be added to all affected files, and they’ll usually indicate the name of ransomware. While not necessarily seen in all cases, some file encrypting malware do use strong encoding algorithms for file encryption, which makes it hard to recover files without having to pay. A note with the ransom will then launch, or will be found in folders that have encoded files, and it should explain everything, or at least try to. You’ll be offered to buy a decryption program, but malicious program researchers do not advise doing that. Complying with the requests doesn’t necessarily mean file decryption because there is nothing preventing crooks from just taking your money, leaving your files locked. Not only would you be risking losing your money, you would also be supporting their future criminal projects. Even though it’s understandable, by giving into the requests, victims are making file encrypting malware a rather successful business, which is thought to have made $1 billion in 2016, and evidently that will lure plenty of people to it. Instead of paying the ransom, invest the money into backup. These kinds of situations could reoccur again, but if you had backup, file loss would not be a possibility. Terminate Com2 Ransomware if it is still inhabiting your computer, instead of giving into requests. If you become familiar with how these threats are spread, you should learn to dodge them in the future.
