About this threat

QNBQW Ransomware file-encrypting malware, often known as ransomware, will encrypt your data. Threat may result in severe consequences, as the data you can no longer access might be permanently inaccessible. It is rather easy to contaminate your computer, which only adds to why it’s so dangerous. If your system is infected, a spam email attachment, an infected ad or a bogus download is responsible. After it encodes your files, it’ll request you to pay a ransom for a decryptor tool. You’ll possibly be demanded to pay between tens and thousands of dollars, it depends on what file encrypting malicious software you have, and how much you value your files. Whatever amount is requested of you, consider the situation cautiously before you do. Keep in mind that you’re dealing with cyber criminals who may not give you anything, even after you pay. If you were left with undecrypted files after paying, you would certainly not be the first one. Instead of giving into the requests, it would be better to buy backup with requested money. You will be presented with a lot of different options, but it shouldn’t be difficult to choose the best option for you. And if by chance you do have backup, just delete QNBQW Ransomware before you restore files. These threats are everywhere, so you will have to prepare yourself. To protect a system, one should always be ready to encounter possible malware, becoming informed about their spread methods.

How does ransomware spread

Users normally corrupt their devices with ransomware through malicious email attachments, pressing on malicious ads and downloading from untrustworthy sources. Only seldom does file encoding malware use more elaborate methods.

Recall if you have recently opened a weird email attachment. The infected file is simply attached to an email, and then sent out to hundreds of possible victims. Crooks could make those emails very convincing, commonly using sensitive topics like money and taxes, which is why we aren’t surprised that those attachments are opened. You can expect the ransomware email to contain a general greeting (Dear Customer/Member/User etc), grammatical mistakes, encouragement to open the file added, 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. Known company names like Amazon are commonly used as users trust them, thus are not hesitant to open the emails. Clicking on advertisements when on dubious pages and downloading files from questionable sources may also result in an infection. If you regularly engage with ads while on questionable web pages, it’s no wonder your system is infected. And use only legitimate websites for downloads. Sources like ads and pop-ups are infamous for being not trustworthy sources, so avoid downloading anything from them. If a program was needed to be updated, it would notify you via the application itself, and not via your browser, and most update themselves anyway.

What happened to your files?

Specialists often warn about how harmful data encrypting malware can be, most importantly, its ability to permanently encode data. The process of encoding your files take a very short time, so you may not even notice it. If other signs aren’t obvious, the weird file extension added to the files should make everything clear. Strong encryption algorithms will be used to lock your files, which makes decoding files for free pretty difficult or even impossible. A note with the ransom will then launch, or will be found in folders containing encrypted files, and it should give you a clear idea of what has occurred. The note will offer you a decryption key, for a price, of course, but we suggest you ignore the demands. Paying does not guarantee file decryption because hackers could just take your money, leaving your files encrypted. You would also support the crooks’s future malicious projects, in addition to likely losing your money. By complying with the demands, people are making ransomware a progressively more successful business, which already made $1 billion in 2016, and that attracts many people to it. Consider investing the demanded money into trustworthy backup instead. If this type of situation reoccurred, you could just remove it without being worried about losing your data. Erase QNBQW Ransomware if it’s still present on your device, instead of complying with the demands. If you become familiar with the spread methods of this threat, you should be able to dodge them in the future.
