About ransomware

DoppelPaymer Ransomware is a file-encrypting malware, known as ransomware in short. It’s likely you’ve never ran into ransomware before, in which case, you may be in for a big surprise. Strong encryption algorithms are used for file encryption, and if it successfully encrypts your files, you will be unable to access them any longer. Victims aren’t always able to decrypt files, which is the reason why ransomware is believed to be such a high-level contamination. Cyber crooks will give you a decryption tool but complying with the requests might not be the greatest option. There are a lot of cases where a decryption utility was not provided even after victims comply with the demands. There’s nothing preventing criminals from just taking your money, without giving you a decryptor. Furthermore, by paying you’d be financing the projects (more ransomware and malicious program) of these cyber crooks. Data encoding malicious software already does billions of dollars in damage, do you really want to support that. People are attracted to easy money, and the more victims comply with the demands, the more appealing ransomware becomes to those types of people. You might find yourself in this type of situation again in the future, so investing the demanded money into backup would be a better choice because file loss would not be a possibility. You can then simply erase DoppelPaymer Ransomware and restore data. And if you’re wondering how the ransomware managed to infect your system, we’ll explain its spread ways in the below paragraph.

Ransomware distribution methods

You may generally see ransomware attached to emails or on dubious download web pages. Because users tend to be quite careless when dealing with emails and downloading files, there is frequently no need for those spreading data encoding malware to use more elaborate ways. Nevertheless, some ransomware do use more elaborate methods. All cyber criminals have to do is add a malicious file to an email, write a semi-convincing text, and falsely claim to be from a credible company/organization. Money related issues are a common topic in those emails because people tend to engage with those emails. Pretty frequently you will see big company names like Amazon used, for example, if Amazon emailed someone a receipt for a purchase that the person doesn’t recall making, he/she would open the attached file at once. Be on the lookout for certain things before you open email attachments. Most importantly, check if you know the sender before opening the file attached they have sent, and if you do not recognize them, investigate who they are. If the sender turns out to be someone you know, don’t rush to open the file, first cautiously check the email address. Also, be on the look out for grammatical errors, which can be pretty obvious. Another rather obvious sign is the lack of your name in the greeting, if a real company/sender were to email you, they would definitely use your name instead of a general greeting, referring to you as Customer or Member. Weak spots in a system could also be used for contaminating. Software comes with certain weak spots that could be used for malware to get into a device, but they’re fixed by vendors as soon as they’re discovered. As WannaCry has proven, however, not everyone is that quick to install those updates for their programs. Situations where malicious software uses vulnerabilities to enter is why it’s so critical that your software frequently get updates. If you do not want to be disturbed with updates, they could be set up to install automatically.

How does it act

A file encoding malware only targets certain files, and when they’re located, they are encoded almost at once. Initially, it may be confusing as to what’s going on, but when you are unable to open your files, it should become clear. A file extension will be attached to all files that have been encrypted, which assists people in identifying which data encrypting malware they have. Strong encryption algorithms could have been used to encode your files, which may mean that you cannot decrypt them. A ransom note will clarify that your files have been encrypted and to go about to restore them. According to the criminals, you will be able to restore files with their decryptor, which will not be free. The note should plainly display the price for the decryptor but if that isn’t the case, you’ll be provided a way to contact the crooks to set up a price. As you already know, paying isn’t the option we would choose. Paying ought to be considered when all other options fail. Try to remember whether you have ever made backup, your files could be stored somewhere. In some cases, free decryptors could be found. Malware researchers are sometimes able to develop decryption tools for free, if the file encoding malicious software is decryptable. Look into that option and only when you’re certain there is no free decryption program, should you even consider paying. A much wiser purchase would be backup. In case you had made backup before the contamination took place, simply uninstall DoppelPaymer Ransomware and then unlock DoppelPaymer Ransomware files. Try to familiarize with how ransomware is distributed so that you can dodge it in the future. At the very least, do not open email attachments randomly, keep your programs updated, and only download from safe sources.
