Is this a serious threat

Styver ransomware is a file-encoding kind of malware, often known as ransomware. It’s not a minor threat since it may leave your data encrypted for good. Also it’s very easy to infect your device. If you have recently opened a weird email attachment, pressed on a dubious ad or downloaded an ‘update’ advertised on some shady website, that is how you possibly picked up the threat. After data is successfully encoded, it’ll ask you to pay a ransom for a for a method to decode files. Between $100 and $1000 is probably what you will be asked to pay. Even if a small sum is asked of you, we do not recommend giving in. Considering cyber criminals are not compelled to help you in data recovery, we doubt they will not just take your money. There are a lot of accounts of people receiving nothing after complying with the demands. Investing the money you are asked for into some backup option would be a better idea. You will be presented with a lot of different options, but it shouldn’t be difficult to choose the best option for you. And if by chance you do have backup, just eliminate Styver ransomware and then proceed to data restoration. Malware like this is lurking all over the place, and contamination is likely to happen again, so the least you could do is be prepared for it. If you wish to stay safe, you have to familiarize yourself with possible contaminations and how to guard your system from them.

How does ransomware spread

Although you can find exceptions, most file encrypting malware use the most basic ways of distribution, like spam email, corrupted advertisements and downloads. Only seldom does data encrypting malware use more elaborate methods.

You could have recently opened a corrupted email attachment from a spam email. The infected file is attached to an email, and then sent out to potential victims. Because those emails often use sensitive topics, such as money, plenty of users open them without even considering what could happen. When dealing with unknown sender emails, be on the look out for certain signs that it might be malicious, such as grammatical mistakes, encourage to open the attachment. Your name would be automatically put in into an email if the sender was from some legitimate company whose email should be opened. Crooks also tend to use big names such as Amazon so that people are less distrustful. Pressing on adverts when on dubious pages and using compromised sites as download sources might also result in an infection. If you regularly engage with adverts while on dubious websites, it is not really shocking that you got your device infected. And stick to official web pages when it comes to downloads. Never get anything, not software and not updates, from sources like advertisements or pop-ups. Programs commonly update without you even noticing, but if manual update was needed, you would get an alert via the program, not the browser.

What happened to your files?

File encoding malicious software may result in your files being permanently encrypted, which is what makes it such a damaging threat. It may take mere minutes for it to find the files it wants and encode them. You will see a weird extension added to your files, which will help you figure out which ransomware you are dealing with. A file encrypting malicious program will use strong encryption algorithms, which might be impossible to break. When all target files have been encrypted, a ransom note should appear, and it ought to explain how you should proceed. Even though you will be offered a decoding program for your files, paying for it would not necessarily be the best idea. The hackers could just take your money, they will not feel bound to help you. The ransom money would also possibly be funding future ransomware projects. And, people will increasingly become attracted to the already very profitable business, which reportedly made $1 billion in 2016 alone. Instead of paying the ransom, the suggested usage of that money would be for buying backup. These kinds of infections could reoccur again, and you wouldn’t have to worry about file loss if you had backup. Just ignore the requests and erase Styver ransomware. These kinds infections can be avoided, if you know how they spread, so try to become familiar with its distribution methods, at least the basics.
