How does ransomware spread

In most cases, most ransomware use infected email attachments and advertisements, and false downloads to infect computers, although there are exceptions. More elaborate methods can be used too, however.

If you remember downloading a weird file from a seemingly real email in the spam folder, that could be why your files are now encrypted. The method includes creators attaching the data encrypting malware infected file to an email, which gets sent to many users. Because those emails commonly use topics such as money, plenty of people open them without even thinking about the consequences. You can expect the data encoding malicious software email to contain a basic greeting (Dear Customer/Member/User etc), evident mistypes and mistakes in grammar, strong encouragement to open the file added, and the use of a big company name. To clarify, if someone important sends you an attachment, they would use your name, not general greetings, and you wouldn’t need to search for the email in spam. Big company names like Amazon are often used because people trust them, thus are not afraid to open the emails. Pressing on advertisements when on dubious sites and using compromised websites as download sources might also lead to an infection. Compromised pages may host malicious adverts so avoid pressing on them. And when it comes to downloading something, only do it through official pages. One thing to keep in mind is to never download software, updates, or anything really, from pop-up or any other types of ads. If a program was needed to be updated, it would notify you through the program itself, and not via your browser, and most update without your interference anyway.

What happened to your files?

A very big reason on why ransomware are categorized as a dangerous-level infection is because it could make decryption impossible. It has a list of files types it would target, and it will take a short time to find and encrypt them all. All files that have been encrypted will have an extension added to them. Ransomware will use strong encryption algorithms, which are not always possible to break. You will get a ransom note once the encryption process has been finished, and it ought to explain the situation. The ransom note will have information about how to purchase the decryption utility, but think about all you options before you choose to do as crooks demand. Remember who you are dealing with, what’s stopping crooks from simply taking your money. Your money would also finance their future criminal activity. According to reports, data encoding malicious programs made an estimated $1 billion in 2016, and such large sums of money will just lure more people who wish to earn easy money. Consider buying reliable backup instead. These kinds of infections can reoccur again, and you wouldn’t need to worry about file loss if you had backup. If you have decided to ignore the demands, you will have to uninstall Defray 2018 Ransomware if you know it to still be inside the system. If you become familiar with how these threats are spread, you should learn to avoid them in the future.
