How is ransomware distributed

Commonly, ransomware spreads through spam emails, exploit kits and malicious downloads. Seeing as these methods are still used, that means that people are pretty negligent when they use email and download files. More elaborate ways may be used as well, although they are not as popular. Hackers do not have to do much, just write a generic email that less careful users could fall for, attach the contaminated file to the email and send it to future victims, who may think the sender is someone credible. Those emails often discuss money because due to the delicacy of the topic, people are more prone to opening them. Quite often you’ll see big names like Amazon used, for example, if Amazon emailed someone a receipt for a purchase that the user does not remember making, he/she would open the attachment at once. When you are dealing with emails, there are certain things to look out for if you want to protect your device. Check the sender to make sure it is someone you’re familiar with. Even if you know the sender, you should not rush, first investigate the email address to ensure it matches the address you know to belong to that person/company. Look for grammatical or usage errors, which are generally pretty glaring in those emails. Another pretty obvious sign is your name not used in the greeting, if someone whose email you should definitely open were to email you, they would definitely use your name instead of a general greeting, addressing you as Customer or Member. Weak spots in a computer might also be used by a data encoding malware to get into your device. All software have vulnerabilities but when they’re found, they’re usually fixed by vendors so that malware can’t take advantage of it to enter. As WannaCry has shown, however, not everyone is that quick to update their software. Because many malware can use those vulnerabilities it is critical that you regularly update your software. Updates could install automatically, if you find those notifications bothersome.

How does it behave

Your files will be encrypted as soon as the ransomware infects your system. If you initially did not realize something going on, you’ll certainly know when your files are locked. You will see that all encrypted files have strange extensions attached to them, and that helps people recognize what type of ransomware it is. In a lot of cases, file decoding might impossible because the encryption algorithms used in encryption could be not restorable. In the ransom note, cyber criminals will explain that they’ve encrypted your data, and propose you a way to restore them. What they will offer you is to use their decryptor, which won’t come for free. If the ransom amount isn’t clearly stated, you would have to use the given email address to contact the cyber criminals to find out the amount, which might depend on the value of your files. Obviously, paying the ransom is not suggested. Before even considering paying, look into all other options first. Maybe you just don’t remember creating copies. A free decryptor might also be available. If a malware specialist is capable of cracking the file encrypting malicious program, he/she might release a free decryption tools. Consider that before you even think about complying with the requests. Investing part of that money to buy some kind of backup may turn out to be better. If you had backed up your most valuable files, you just terminate Zeropadypt NextGen ransomware virus and then proceed to file recovery. Now that you how how much damage this type of threat may do, do your best to avoid it. Stick to safe web pages when it comes to downloads, pay attention to what kind of email attachments you open, and make sure you keep your software updated.
