Ransomware distribution methods

does not use complicated ways to spread and likes to stick to sending out corrupted email attachments, compromised advertisements and corrupting downloads. Occasionally, however, people get infected using more elaborate methods.

Since you might have gotten the ransomware via email attachments, try and remember if you have recently obtained a weird file from an email. The infected file is added to an email, and then sent out to hundreds of possible victims. Because those emails commonly use sensitive topics, like money, plenty of people open them without even thinking about the consequences. In addition to errors in grammar, if the sender, who certainly knows your name, uses greetings such as Dear User/Customer/Member and strongly encourages you to open the file attached, it could be a sign that the email isn’t what it appears. Your name would be automatically put in into an email if the sender was from a company whose email ought to be opened. You will also see that crooks like to use big names such as Amazon so that people are not as suspicious. Or maybe you clicked on the wrong advert when on a dubious page, or downloaded something from a source that you should have avoided. If you are someone who interacts with ads while visiting strange websites, it is not really surprising that your system is infected. It’s possible you downloaded the ransomware accidentally when it was concealed as some kind of software/file on an untrustworthy download platform, which is why you’re better off using legitimate sources. Avoid downloading anything from ads, as they’re not good sources. If a program needed to update itself, it would do it itself or notify you, but never via browser.

What does it do?

Because data encrypting malicious software is able to permanently lock you out of your files, it is classified to be a highly damaging threat. And it is only a matter of minutes before your data are encoded. What makes file encryption very obvious is the file extension attached to all affected files, usually displaying the name of the data encrypting malicious software. The reason why your files may be permanently lost is because strong encryption algorithms could be used for the encryption process, and may be impossible to break them. A ransom note will then appear on your screen, or will be found in folders containing encrypted files, and it should explain everything, or at least attempt to. The ransom note will offer you decryption utility, but think about everything thoroughly before you make the decision to give into the requests. By paying, you would be trusting crooks, the very people responsible for locking your data. In addition, your money would support their future projects. Although it’s reasonable, by complying with the requests, victims are making ransomware a rather successful business, which is estimated to have earned $1 billion in 2016, and obviously that attracts plenty of people to it. You may want to consider buying backup with that money instead. Situations where your files are endangered can occur all the time, and you wouldn’t have to worry about data loss if you had backup. We would recommend you don’t pay attention to the requests, and if the threat still remains on your system, uninstall .D00mEd virus, for which you’ll find guidelines below.
