What is ransomware

CrY ransomware is file-encrypting ransomware. Malicious downloads and spam emails are the most probable way you downloaded the contamination. Ransomware is an extremely dangerous piece of malware because it encrypts data, and demands for money in exchange for recovering them.

You not having backup can lead to file loss as file recovery using other ways is not always possible. Paying the ransom won’t necessarily result in data decryption so take that into account if you select to pay. There are many of cases when file-encrypting malicious software authors just take the money and leave files locked.

Try to recall if you have recently opened a file attached to an email as it’s likely you obtained the contamination from there. Adding an infected file to an email and sending it to many users is all that has to be done by malware developers so as to infect. The file-encrypting malicious software will download onto the system as soon as the email attachment is opened. Reckless or less informed users might be putting their PCs in danger if they open every single email attachment they receive. You can generally differentiate an infected email from a secure one pretty easily, you simply need to learn the signs.
