Criminals spreading ransomware add an infected file to an email, send it to potential victims, and once the attachment is opened, the computer is infected. Those emails might seem urgent, often containing topics such as money, which is why users open them in the first place. When you are dealing with emails from senders you do not know, look out for certain signs that it could be harboring file encrypting malicious program, like grammatical mistakes, strong suggestion to open the attachment. To explain, if someone important would send you an attachment, they would would know your name and would not use general greetings, and you would not need to search for the email in the spam folder.

If you were visiting a compromised web page and pressed on an infected advertisement, it could have triggered the data encoding malware download.

Programs generally update automatically, but if manual update was needed, you would get an alert via the application, not the browser.

What happened to your files?

What makes data encrypting malware so dangerous is its capability of encoding your files which might lead to you being permanently blocked from accessing them. And it’s only a matter of time before all your data are encoded. Weird file extensions will appear added to all affected files, and they’ll probably indicate the name of ransomware.

Situations where your files are endangered can occur all the time, but if backup was available, you wouldn’t need to worry about file loss.
