Infection usually happens via spam email attachments, infected advertisements or fake downloads. After infection, the encoding process will begin, and once it is finished, criminals will ask that you pay a ransom for data recovery. You may be asked to pay $50, or $1000, it all depends on which data encoding malware you have. It isn’t advised to pay, even if you’re asked for very little money. There’s nothing preventing criminals from just taking your money, giving nothing in exchange. You can definitely encounter accounts of people not getting files back after payment, and that is not really surprising. Think about investing the money into backup, so that if this situation was to occur again, you wouldn’t risk losing your data.

How does data encrypting malicious program spread

doesn’t use complicated ways to spread and normally sticks to sending out malicious email attachments, compromised adverts and infecting downloads. Nevertheless, it’s possible for ransomware to use more sophisticated methods.

It is possible you downloaded an infected file added to an email, which would cause the file encrypting malicious program to initiate. All criminals distributing the file encoding malicious software have to do is add an infected file to an email, send it to possible victims, who contaminate their computers as soon as they open the attachment. Those kinds of emails usually land in the spam folder but some people think of them as credible and move them to the inbox, thinking it’s credible. What you can expect from a ransomware email is a basic greeting (Dear Customer/Member/User etc), grammatical mistakes, encouragement to open the attachment, and the use of a famous business name. To make it more clear, if someone important would send you a file, they would use your name, not common greetings, and it wouldn’t end up in the spam folder. Expect to come across company names like Amazon or PayPal used in those emails, as a familiar name would make the email seem more legitimate. It’s also not outside the realms of possibility that when visiting a suspicious site, you clicked on some ad that was dangerous, or downloaded a file or program from some dubious source. Be very careful about which advertisements you interact with, particularly when on dubious websites. Avoid untrustworthy websites for downloading, and stick to official ones. Sources like advertisements and pop-ups are infamous for being unreliable sources, so never download anything from them. If a program was in need of an update, it would notify you through the program itself, and not via your browser, and usually they update themselves anyway.

What happened to your files?

A very big reason on why ransomware are categorized as a high-level infection is because it could encode your data in a way that makes decryption highly unlikely. And the encoding process is very fast, it is only a matter of minutes, if not seconds, for all files you think are important to become encrypted. The file extension attached to files that have been encoded makes it very obvious what happened, and it commonly indicates the name of the ransomware. Some ransomware do use strong encryption algorithms on your files, which makes it hard to recover files for free. A ransom note will appear once the encryption process is completed, and the situation ought to be clearer. The ransom note will have information about how to buy the decryptor, but think about everything thoroughly before you make the decision to give into the demands. What is there to stop crooks from simply taking could just take your money without helping you with your data. Furthermore, you would be providing financial support for the hackers’s future projects. And, people will increasingly become interested in the already very successful business, which reportedly made $1 billion in 2016 alone. As we have said above, a wiser investment would be backup, which would ensure that your files are safe. In case of a similar infection again, you could just get rid of it and not worry about losing your files. We would recommend you don’t pay attention to the demands, and if the infection is still inside on your device, remove Zenis ransomware, for which you will see instructions below.
