Is this a severe threat

Blank ransomware file-encrypting malware, also known as ransomware, will encrypt your data. It really depends on which ransomware is to blame, but you may end up permanently losing your files. It is pretty easy to contaminate your system, which makes it a very dangerous malware. If you recall opening a strange email attachment, clicking on some infected advert or downloading an ‘update’ advertised on some untrustworthy web page, that’s how it contaminated your computer. After data is successfully encrypted, it’ll ask you to pay a ransom for a decryptor tool. Between $100 and $1000 is probably what you will be asked to pay. No matter how much you are requested to pay, it isn’t encouraged to comply with the demands. Don’t trust criminals to keep their word and restore your files, as there is nothing stopping them from simply taking your money. You can certainly encounter accounts of users not being able to decrypt data after payment, and that isn’t really shocking. Look into some backup options, so that if this were to occur again, you wouldn’t be risking your data. You can find all types of backup options, and we are sure you can find one that’s right for you. Simply delete Blank ransomware, and if you had backup prior to infection, you can restore data from there. You will happen upon malware like this everywhere, and you’ll likely get contaminated again, so you have to be ready for it. If you want your system to not be infected constantly, you’ll have to learn about malware and how it could infiltrate your computer.

File encoding malware distribution methods

does not use sophisticated infiltration methods and tends to stick to sending out emails with infected attachments, compromised adverts and corrupting downloads. Nevertheless, that does not mean more complex methods won’t be used by some data encrypting malicious program.

If you can remember opening a file which you got from an apparently real email in the spam folder, that may be where you obtained the ransomware from. The contaminated file is added to an email, and then sent out to hundreds of possible victims. Those kinds of emails usually land in the spam folder but some people think of them as convincing and move them to the inbox, believing it is important. What you can expect from a ransomware email is a general greeting (Dear Customer/Member/User etc), grammatical errors, strong suggestion to open the file attached, and the use of a famous firm name. Your name would definitely be used in the greeting if the sender was from a company whose email should be opened. You may encounter company names such as Amazon or PayPal used in those emails, as a known name would make the email seem more authentic. If you recall pressing on some questionable ads or downloading files from unreliable web pages, that’s also how you could’ve gotten the threat. Be very careful about what adverts you click on, especially when on questionable websites. And use only legitimate pages when it comes to downloads. Sources such as advertisements and pop-ups are not good sources, so never download anything from them. If a program was needed to be updated, you would be notified via the program itself, not via your browser, and most update themselves anyway.

What happened to your files?

It is not impossible for ransomware to permanently encode files, which is why it’s an infection you want to definitely avoid. File encryption doesn’t take long, ransomware has a list of targets and locates all of them quite quickly. The file extension added to all affected files makes it very obvious what happened, and it usually shows the name of the file encoding malware. Strong encryption algorithms will be used to make your files inaccessible, which makes decrypting files for free very difficult or even impossible. A note with the ransom will then launch, or will be found in folders that have encrypted files, and it should explain everything, or at least try to. The creators/spreaders of the data encrypting malware will demand that you use their decryption program, which you obviously have to pay for, and that is not advised. If you are expecting the cyber crooks accountable for encrypting your files to keep their word, you may be disappointed, as they may simply take your money. Your money would also finance their future file encrypting malware projects. And, more and more people will become interested in the business which reportedly earned $1 billion in 2016. Buying backup would be a much better idea. In case of a similar infection again, you could just get rid of it and not worry about losing your files. Remove Blank ransomware if it is still present on your computer, instead of complying with the demands. If you become familiar with how these infections spread, you should be able to avoid them in the future.
