File encoding malware spread methods

The majority of data encoding malware rely on the most primitive distribution methods, which include spam email attachments and corrupted ads/downloads. On infrequent occasions, however, users get infected using more sophisticated methods.

Try to recall if you have recently received a weird email with a file attached to it, which you opened. Once the corrupted file is opened, the ransomware will be able to begin encoding your data. Those emails may be written in a convincing way, usually covering money topics, which is why people may open them without thinking about it. In addition to mistakes in grammar, if the sender, who definitely knows your name, uses greetings such as Dear User/Customer/Member and puts strong pressure on you to open the file added, it may be a sign that the email contains data encrypting malicious software. A company whose email you ought to certainly open would not use general greetings, and would use your name instead. Crooks also tend to use big names such as Amazon, PayPal, etc so that users become more trusting. Pressing on advertisements hosted on questionable web pages and using compromised sites as download sources might also lead to an infection. Compromised pages may be hosting infected ads so stop pressing on them. It’s likely you downloaded the ransomware accidentally when it was concealed as some kind of software/file on an untrustworthy download platform, which is why you should stick to valid ones. Sources like ads and pop-ups are notorious for being unreliable sources, so avoid downloading anything from them.
