What is ransomware

GarrantyDecrypt ransomware will immediately start encrypting your files, as it’s ransomware. Ransomware is thought to be a very severe threat because file-decryption is not always likely. Due to this, and the fact that infection occurs quite easily, ransomware is thought to be very dangerous. A big factor in a successful ransomware infiltration is user carelessness, as infection generally happens when people open infected email attachments, press on strange advertisements and fall for bogus ‘downloads’. Once a system gets infected, the encoding process begins, and once it is finished, crooks will demand that you pay a ransom if you want to decrypt your data. You might be demanded to pay $50, or $1000, depending on which data encrypting malware you have. Whatever you are requested to pay by this infection, consider every likely consequence before you do. Considering cyber criminals will feel no responsibility to recover your files, it is likely they will just take your money. If you take the time to look into it, you will definitely find accounts of users not being able to recover data, even after paying. It would be wiser to invest that money, or some part of it, into trustworthy backup instead of complying with the demands. While you will be given many different options, it should not be hard to find the best option for you. And if by accident you do have backup, just delete GarrantyDecrypt ransomware before you restore files. This is not likely to be the last time malicious program will enter your system, so you need to prepare. To protect a device, one should always be on the lookout for potential threats, becoming informed about how to avoid them.

How does ransomware spread

does not use complicated ways to spread and generally sticks to sending out emails with infected attachments, compromised adverts and infecting downloads. It does, however, every now and then use more elaborate methods.

You must have recently downloaded an infected email attachment from a spam email. The method includes developers adding the ransomware infected file to an email, which is then sent to many users. It is not rare for those emails to talk about money, which is the topic people are likely to think is important, therefore would open such an email without thinking. You can expect the ransomware email to contain a basic greeting (Dear Customer/Member/User etc), noticeable mistypes and errors in grammar, strong suggestion to open the file attached, and the use of a famous business name. If the email was from a company whose services you use, your name would be put in automatically into the email they send you, and a regular greeting would not be used. It would not be surprising to see names such as Amazon or PayPal used, because when people notice a familiar name, they let down their guard. Or maybe you engaged with an infected advert when browsing suspicious sites, or downloaded something from a questionable source. Compromised pages might host infected adverts so stop engaging with them. And try to stick to valid download sources as much as possible, because otherwise you may be putting your system in danger. Never get anything, whether it’s programs or updates, from dubious sources, which include advertisements. If a program was needed to be updated, you would be notified through the application itself, not through your browser, and commonly they update without your interference anyway.

What happened to your files?

File encrypting malicious programs is categorized as damaging is because it could encode your files and lead to you being permanently blocked from accessing them. The ransomware has a list of files types it would target, and it’ll take a short time to find and encode them all. If other signs are not obvious, the weird file extension added to the files should make everything clear. The reason why your files may be permanently lost is because some ransomware use strong encryption algorithms for the encoding process, and can be impossible to break them. When all target files have been locked, a ransom note will appear, with information about what has occurred. The creators/distributors of the data encoding malware will offer you a decryption program, which you obviously have to pay for, and that’s not suggested. You are dealing with crooks, and they may simply take your money not providing you a decryption tool in exchange. The ransom money would also likely go towards funding future ransomware activities. According to reports, file encoding malicious software made an estimated $1 billion in 2016, and such a profitable business will just attract more and more people. We suggest you instead buy in some kind of backup, which would store copies of your files in case something happened to the original. These kinds of infections could reoccur again, and you wouldn’t need to worry about file loss if you had backup. Terminate GarrantyDecrypt ransomware if it’s still present, instead of complying with the demands. These types infections can be avoided, if you know how they are distributed, so try to become familiar with its spread ways, at least the basics.
