Is this a severe infection

.Crab virus ransomware is a piece of malicious software that’ll encode your files. These kinds of contaminations should be taken seriously, as they could result in file loss. What’s more, infecting your computer is fairly easy, thus making file encoding malware one of the most dangerous malware out there. A large factor in a successful ransomware infection is user neglect, as infection often infiltrates via spam email attachments, dangerous ads and malicious downloads. As soon as a PC gets infected, the encoding process will begin, and once it is finished, criminals will ask that you give money in exchange for a way to decode files. You’ll likely be demanded to pay between tens and thousands of dollars, depending on what ransomware you have, and how valuable your data is. Whether you’re requested for a lot of money, or a small amount, we don’t advise complying with the demands. There’s nothing stopping crooks from taking your money, without providing you a decoding utility. There are a lot of accounts of users receiving nothing after complying with the requests. We advise buy backup, instead. While you’ll be presented with many different options, it shouldn’t be hard to find the best option for you. And if by accident you had backed up your data before the infection took place, simply remove .Crab virus and then proceed to file recovery. This isn’t the last time you’ll get infected with some kind of malicious program, so you ought to be ready. To guard a computer, one must always be ready to run into possible malware, becoming familiar with their spread methods.

How does file encoding malware spread

Normally, data encrypting malicious software uses rather basic methods for distribution, such as through suspicious sources for downloads, corrupted adverts and infected email attachments. More elaborate methods could be used too, however.

The most likely way you got the file encoding malicious program is via email attachment, which may have came from an email that at first glance appears to be entirely legitimate. Once the corrupted attachment is opened, the data encoding malware will be able to start the encoding process. It is quite normally for those emails to talk about money, which encourages many people to open it. Usage of basic greetings (Dear Customer/Member), strong encouraging to open the file attached, and evident mistakes in grammar are what you ought to look out for when dealing with emails that contain files. A company whose email you ought to certainly open would use your name instead of the regular greeting. Don’t be shocked if you see names such as Amazon or PayPal used, as users are more likely to trust the sender if it is a familiar name. It’s also likely that you engaged with some dangerous advert when on a questionable site, or downloaded something from a suspicious website. Certain advertisements might be infected, so it’s best if you refrain from clicking on them when on dubious reputation pages. Or you might have acquired the data encoding malware along with some software you downloaded from an unreliable source. You ought to never get anything, not programs and not updates, from sources like advertisements or pop-ups. Programs usually update automatically, but if manual update was needed, you would be alerted through the application itself.

What happened to your files?

Infection that leads to permanent file loss is not an impossible scenario, which is what makes a data encrypting malicious program so damaging. File encryption does not take a long time, a file encoding malware has a list of targets and locates all of them immediately. All files that have been encoded will have a file extension attached to them. Ransomware commonly uses strong encryption algorithms to encrypt files. If you are confused about what is going on, a ransom note should explain everything. It will tell you how much you should pay for a decryption utility, but buying it is not something we suggest doing. The crooks may simply take your money, it’s doubtful they’ll feel obligated to help you. Not only would you be risking losing your money, you would also be funding their future criminal projects. When people give into the demands, they are making data encoding malicious programs a pretty successful business, which is thought to have earned $1 billion in 2016, and that attracts many people to it. Think about buying trustworthy backup instead. And if this type of threat took over your system, you would not be risking losing your data as you could just access them from backup. Simply ignore the requests and terminate .Crab virus. And In the future, try to avoid these kinds of threats by familiarizing with how they spread.
