How does ransomware spread

doesn’t use complex methods to spread and tends to stick to sending out corrupted email attachments, compromised advertisements and corrupting downloads. Seldom, however, more elaborate methods may be used.

It is possible you downloaded an infected file attached to an email, which is what authorized the ransomware to enter. Once the corrupted attachment is opened, the ransomware will be able to begin encoding your files. We are not really shocked that users open the attachments, considering that criminals sometimes put in a decent amount of work in order make the emails authentic, mentioning money-related issues and similarly sensitive topics, which users are likely to panic about. When dealing with unknown sender emails, be on the look out for specific signs that it might be dangerous, such as grammatical mistakes, strong encouragement to open the attachment. To clarify, if someone whose attachment you ought to open sends you an email, they would would know your name and wouldn’t use common greetings, and you would not have to search for the email in the spam folder. Expect to see company names such as Amazon or PayPal used in those emails, as a familiar name would make the email look more legitimate. Or maybe you pressed on an infected ad when on a dubious web page, or downloaded something from a source that you should have avoided. If you are someone who engages with advertisements while on questionable websites, it’s not really surprising that you got your computer infected. It is possible you downloaded the ransomware accidentally when it was hidden as some kind of program/file on an untrustworthy download platform, which is why you should stick to valid ones. Avoid downloading anything from advertisements, whether they’re pop-ups or banners or any other kind. Programs usually update themselves, but if manual update was necessary, you would be notified through the program itself.

What does it do?

What makes data encrypting malware so dangerous is its capability of encoding your data which might permanently block you from accessing them. It has a list of files types it would target, and their encryption will take a very short time. Strange file extensions will appear added to all affected files, from which you may judge which ransomware you are dealing with. The reason why your files might be permanently lost is because strong encoding algorithms could be used for the encryption process, and it isn’t always possible to break them. In case you do not understand what is going on, everything will become clear when a ransom note gets dropped. The note will demand that you buy a decryption key file recovery, but paying is not the best option for a couple of reasons. Remember that you are dealing with crooks, and they could just take your money not giving you a decryptor in return. Additionally, you’d be giving crooks money to further create malicious software. These types of infections are estimated to have made $1 billion in 2016, and such a successful business will just attract more and more people. As we have mentioned before, investing into backup would be better, as copies of your files would always be accessible. In case of a similar infection again, you could just ignore it and not worry about possible data loss. If you aren’t planning on complying with the demands, proceed to uninstall RAPID RANSOMWARE V3 Ransomware in case it is still operating. And try to familiarize with how these kinds of threats are distributed, so that this does not occur.
