About this infection

David ransomware is classified as ransomware, a type of malicious program that will encrypt your files. Contamination might mean, you may lose access to your files permanently, so infection is no simple matter. Also it’s very easy to infect your computer. Infection may happen through spam email attachments, malicious ads or bogus downloads. Once a device gets infected, the encoding process starts, and afterwards, you will be asked to give money in exchange for a way to decode files. The money you are requested to pay is likely to differ depending on the type of ransomware you have, but ought to range from $50 to a couple of thousands of dollars. Even if a minor amount is demanded of you, we don’t recommend paying. Considering criminals aren’t compelled to help you in file recovery, we doubt they won’t just take your money. If you’re left with undecrypted files after paying, we would not be surprised. It would be wiser to take part of the demanded money and invest it into backup, instead. There are many options, and we are certain you will find one best matching your needs. For those who did take the time to back up files prior to contamination, simply delete David ransomware and restore data from where you’re storing them. These types of contaminations won’t go away in the foreseeable future, so you will have to be prepared. If you wish your computer to not be infected continually, you will have to learn about malware and how to prevent them.

Ransomware distribution ways

Although there are special cases, a lot of ransomware use primitive spread methods, which are spam email, malicious ads and fake downloads. More elaborate methods could be used as well, however.

You must have recently opened a corrupted email attachment from a seemingly legitimate email. As you have likely guessed, this method is just attaching a file to an email and sending it to many people. It’s pretty normally for those emails to contain money-related information, which encourages many people to open it. In addition to mistakes in grammar, if the sender, who should certainly know your name, uses Dear User/Customer/Member and strongly encourages you to open the file attached, it could be a sign that the email contains ransomware. Your name would definitely be used in the greeting if the sender was from some legitimate company whose email ought to be opened. You’ll also notice that crooks like to use big names like Amazon, PayPal, etc so that people are less suspicious. Via malicious adverts/downloads might have also been how you contaminated your device with the ransomware. Compromised sites might host infected advertisements so stop pressing on them. And try to stick to valid download sources as frequently as possible, because otherwise you are endangering your computer. Avoid downloading anything from ads, as they are not good sources. Applications usually update themselves, but if manual update was needed, you would be notified through the program itself.

What happened to your files?

Specialists are constantly warning about how dangerous data encrypting malicious software can be, basically because infection would lead to permanent file loss. Once it is inside, it will take a short while to find the files it wants and encode them. You’ll see that your files have an extension attached to them, which will help you identify the ransomware and see which files have been encrypted. The reason why your files may be permanently lost is because strong encoding algorithms might be used for the encoding process, and it is not always possible to break them. You will get a ransom note once the encryption process is completed, and the situation ought to be clearer. The creators/spreaders of the data encoding malicious software will request that you use their decryption program, which you will evidently have to pay for, and that is not advised. Don’t forget you are dealing with crooks, and how would you stop them from just taking your money and providing you nothing in return. And it is probable that the money will go into other malicious program projects, so you would be supporting their future projects. These types of infections are thought to have made $1 billion in 2016, and such large sums of money will just attract more people who wish to earn easy money. Instead of paying crooks money, the recommended usage of that money would be for buying backup. In case of a similar infection again, you could just ignore it and not worry about possible data loss. We would advise you do not pay attention to the demands, and if the threat still remains on your device, uninstall David ransomware, for which you will see guidelines below. If you become familiar with the distribution methods of this infection, you should be able to avoid them in the future.
