About this infection

Epoblockl Ransomware will lock your files, because that is the main intention of ransomware. Infection could result in severe consequences, as encoded data might be permanently inaccessible. It’s rather easy to get contaminated, which only adds to why it’s so dangerous. If you have recently opened a strange email attachment, clicked on a dubious advert or downloaded an application advertised on some shady web page, that’s how you probably picked up the infection. After data is successfully encoded, it’ll demand that you pay a ransom for a decryptor tool. The ransom varies from ransomware to ransomware, some might ask for $50, while others might demand $1000. Think carefully before giving into the demands, no matter how little money you’re asked for. File recovery is not necessarily guaranteed, even after paying, considering there is nothing preventing crooks from just taking your money. You can definitely find accounts of users not getting files back after payment, and that’s not really surprising. It would be a better idea to acquire backup with that money. You’ll be presented with a lot of different options, but it shouldn’t be hard to find the best option for you. If you had backup prior to infection, data recovery will be achievable after you terminate Epoblockl Ransomware. You’ll come across malicious software like this everywhere, and contamination is likely to occur again, so you need to be prepared for it. To protect a device, one should always be ready to encounter potential threats, becoming informed about how to avoid them.

How does file encrypting malware spread

does not use complicated ways to spread and typically sticks to sending out corrupted email attachments, compromised adverts and corrupting downloads. More elaborate methods are not as common.

You could have recently opened a corrupted file from an email which ended up in the spam folder. Essentially, all malware creators need to do is attach a corrupted file to an email, and send it to many users. It’s quite ordinary for those emails to talk about money, which encourages users to open it. You can expect the file encrypting malicious software email to contain a basic greeting (Dear Customer/Member/User etc), clear mistypes and errors in grammar, prompts to open the attachment, and the use of a big business name. If the sender was a company whose services you use, they would have automatically put in your name into the email, instead of a common greeting. It is also rather evident that that crooks tend to use big names like Amazon, PayPal, etc so that users become more trusting. It’s also likely that when visiting a dubious page, you pressed on some ad that was malicious, or obtained something from a suspicious web page. Compromised pages may be hosting malicious advertisements so stop engaging with them. Or you may have downloaded a ransomware-infected file from an unreliable source. Bear in mind that you ought to never download software, updates, or anything really, from weird sources, such as adverts. If an application had to update itself, it wouldn’t notify you via browser, it would either update automatically, or send you an alert through the program itself.

What does it do?

A very big reason on why data encrypting malware are categorized as a dangerous-level infection is because it can encrypt your files in a way that makes decryption highly unlikely. And it takes minutes to have your files encoded. Strange file extensions will be added to all affected files, and they’ll usually indicate the name of ransomware. Ransomware tends to use strong encryption algorithms to make files inaccessible. When all target files have been encrypted, a ransom note ought to appear, with information about what you ought to do next. The ransom note will offer you decryption tool, but consider all you choices before you opt to comply with the demands. By paying, you would be trusting hackers, the people who are to blame for your file encryption in the first place. Furthermore, you would be providing financial support for the future activities of these crooks. And, more and more people will become interested in the already very profitable business, which reportedly made $1 billion in 2016 alone.
