About this infection

Indrik Ransomware is a file-encrypting type of malware, most commonly known as ransomware. Ransomware is a very severe threat and may lead you to permanently losing access to your files. Because of this, and the fact that infection occurs quite easily, ransomware is thought to be a very dangerous infection. Ransomware creators count on users being negligent, as contamination often happens by opening an infected email attachment, clicking on a dangerous advert or falling for bogus ‘downloads’. As soon as the encoding process has been carried out, you’ll see a ransom note, demanding money for a tool that would supposedly decrypt your data. You might be demanded to pay $50, or $1000, it all depends on which file encrypting malware you have. It isn’t recommended to pay, even if giving into the demands is cheap. Considering crooks will not feel compelled to recover your files, what’s preventing them from just taking your money. There are plenty of accounts of people receiving nothing after giving into with the demands. Look into some backup options, so that if this were to reoccur, you you would not lose your files. You’ll be presented with many different options, but it shouldn’t be hard to pick the best option for you. And if by chance you do have backup, just terminate Indrik Ransomware and then proceed to file restoration. These threats aren’t going away any time soon, so you will have to be prepared. If you want your device to be infection-free, it is critical to learn about malicious programs and how it could infiltrate your device.

Data encoding malicious software spread ways

Although there are exceptions, most ransomware use primitive methods of distribution, such as spam email, corrupted advertisements and downloads. However, you might run into more sophisticated methods too.

Try to remember if you have recently opened an attachment from an email which landed in the spam folder. Crooks distributing file encoding malware add an infected file to an email, send it to hundreds of users, who contaminate their computers as soon as they open the file. We are not really surprised that users open the attachments, seeing as those emails may at times seem very realistic, sometimes talking about money or other sensitive topics, which people are likely to panic about. In addition to errors in grammar, if the sender, who definitely knows your name, uses Dear User/Customer/Member and puts strong pressure on you to open the attachment, you have to be cautious. To explain, if someone whose attachment should be opened sends you an email, they would would know your name and would not use common greetings, and it wouldn’t end up in the spam folder. Don’t be surprised if you see names such as Amazon or PayPal used, because when users notice a familiar name, they are more likely to let down their guard. It may have also been the case that you pressed on an infected ad when on a questionable page, or downloaded from an unreliable source. Certain sites could be hosting infected advertisements, which if pressed could trigger malware to download. And try to stick to legitimate download sources as much as possible, because otherwise you’re endangering your device. Never get anything, whether it’s programs or updates, from adverts or pop-ups. Applications commonly update without you even seeing, but if manual update was necessary, you would get an alert via the application, not the browser.

What does it do?

Data encoding malicious software might result in you being permanently locked out of your files, which is why it’s considered to be such a dangerous threat. The process of encoding your files is not a long process, so it is possible you won’t even notice that something is going on. The file extension added to all affected files makes it very obvious what occurred, and it usually shows the name of the data encoding malicious software. The reason why your files might be permanently lost is because strong encryption algorithms could be used for the encryption process, and it’s not always possible to break them. You should then see a ransom note, which should explain the situation. You’ll be offered a decoding program but paying for it wouldn’t necessarily be the best idea. You’re dealing with crooks, and they might simply take your money not providing you a decryptor in return. Furthermore, you would be giving hackers money to further develop malicious program. When victims give into the demands, they are making data encoding malicious programs a rather profitable business, which already earned $1 billion in 2016, and that attracts plenty of people to it. Consider buying trustworthy backup instead. And you would not be putting your files in jeopardy if this kind of situation occurred again. If you are not planning on complying with the requests, proceed to erase Indrik Ransomware if it’s still on your device. And attempt to avoid such infections in the future.
