What is ransomware

Seon Ransomware will lock your files, as that’s the primary purpose of ransomware. You’ve got a highly serious contamination on your hands, and it might lead to severe issues, like you losing your files for good. Also it is fairly easy to get the infection. File encrypting malicious program creators target careless users, as infection often happens by opening a malicious email attachment, pressing on a dangerous ad or falling for bogus ‘downloads’. After contamination, the encoding process starts, and afterwards, you will be requested to give money in exchange for a way to decode files. You’ll likely be asked to pay a minimum of a couple hundred dollars, depending on what ransomware you have, and how much you value your files. It isn’t recommended to pay, even if you’re requested for very little money. Considering criminals are not obligated to help you in file recovery, what is stopping them from taking your money and not giving anything in return. If you’re left with undecrypted data after paying, it wouldn’t be that surprising. This type of thing may reoccur or your device could crash, thus would it not be wiser to invest the requested money into some type of backup. From USBs to cloud storage, you have many options, all you have to do is select. For those who did back up data prior to infection, simply uninstall Seon Ransomware and recover files from where you are storing them. Malicious software like this is hiding everywhere, and contamination is likely to occur again, so the least you could do is be prepared for it. In order to keep a device safe, one must always be ready to come across possible malware, becoming informed about how to avoid them.

How does data encrypting malicious program spread

People generally infect their devices with ransomware via malicious files attached to emails, tapping on infected advertisements and acquiring programs from sources they should not. On uncommon occasions, however, people get infected using more sophisticated methods.

Since you might have obtained the file encoding malware via email attachments, try to remember if you have recently obtained a weird file from an email. Essentially, all malware developers need to do is add a corrupted file to an email, and send it to many users. Those emails might be written in a convincing way, often covering money topics, which is why users open them in the first place. In addition to mistakes in grammar, if the sender, who should definitely know your name, uses Dear User/Customer/Member and firmly pressures you to open the attachment, it may be a sign that the email contains ransomware. If the email was from a company whose services you use, they would have automatically put in your name into the email, instead of a regular greeting. Amazon, PayPal and other known company names are often used as people know them, therefore are not hesitant to open the emails. You may have also gotten the infection through compromised adverts or infected downloads. If while you were on a compromised site you pressed on an infected advertisement, it may have caused the file encrypting malware to download. And stick to official download sources as often as possible, because otherwise you are putting your computer in jeopardy. Sources such as ads and pop-ups are notorious for being untrustworthy sources, so never download anything from them. Programs usually update automatically, but if manual update was needed, an alert would be sent to you via the software itself.

What happened to your files?

Ransomware might result in permanent data loss, which is what makes it such a dangerous infection. It has a list of target files, and their encryption will take a very short time. You’ll see a strange extension added to your files, which will help you figure out which ransomware you are dealing with. The reason why your files might be not possible to decrypt for free is because some ransomware use strong encryption algorithms for the encryption process, and may be impossible to break them. A ransom note will then be dropped, which should explain the situation. It’ll encourage you to buy a decryptor, but buying it’s not recommended. Do not forget you are dealing with cyber criminals, and they could just take your money giving you nothing in return. Furthermore, your money would support their future projects. And, more and more people will become attracted to the already highly profitable business, which allegedly made $1 billion in 2016 alone. Think about investing the demanded money into reliable backup instead. And if a similar infection occurred again, your data wouldn’t be jeopardized as copies would be stored in backup. Remove Seon Ransomware if it is still present, instead of complying with the requests. And make sure you avoid these types of threats in the future.

However, in case you are not sure about where to begin, scroll down for instructions. However unfortunate it may be, those utilities can’t help you decrypt your files, they’ll just get rid of the infection. But, you ought to also know that some ransomware may be decrypted, and malware specialists may develop free decryption utilities.
