What’s worse is that it’s quite easy to contaminate your device. Opening spam email attachments, clicking on infected advertisements and bogus downloads are the most common reasons why data encrypting malware can infect. Once a computer gets infected, the encryption process begins, and afterwards, you will be requested to pay a certain sum of money for data decryption. How much money is demanded depends on the ransomware, you might be asked to pay $50 or a couple of thousands of dollars. Consider everything carefully before agreeing to pay, even if it asks for very little money. We very much doubt cyber crooks will have a moral responsibility to return your data, so they might just take your money. You can definitely encounter accounts of people not being able to recover files after payment, and that is not really shocking. This kind of situation could reoccur, so consider investing into backup, instead of giving into the requests. You will be presented with many backup options, you just need to choose the right one.

How does file encrypting malware spread

People usually corrupt their devices with ransomware via infected files attached to emails, tapping on infected advertisements and getting programs from sources they shouldn’t. Nevertheless, more advanced criminals will use more elaborate methods.

If you recall downloading a weird file from a seemingly real email in the spam folder, that may be how the data encoding malicious software managed to infiltrate. Once the infected attachment is opened, the data encrypting malicious software will be able to begin the encryption process. It isn’t really surprising that people open the attachments, seeing as those emails might occasionally appear very genuine, sometimes talking about money and similar sensitive topics, which people are likely to react urgently to. In addition to grammatical mistakes, if the sender, who ought to certainly know your name, uses Dear User/Customer/Member and puts strong pressure on you to open the file attached, you should be careful. Your name would be put into the email automatically if the sender was from a company whose email you need to open. Criminals also tend to use big names such as Amazon, PayPal, etc so that people do not become distrustful. Infected advertisements and bogus downloads may also be the cause of an infection. Be very cautious about what adverts you press on, especially when visiting questionable sites. And try to stick to official download sources as frequently as possible, because otherwise you could be jeopardizing your computer. Sources like ads and pop-ups are not good sources, so avoid downloading anything from them. If a program was in need of an update, you would be alerted via the application itself, not via your browser, and most update without your intervention anyway.

What does it do?

Malicious program researchers oftentimes warn about how dangerous file encrypting malicious software can be, essentially because infection would lead to permanent file loss. The process of encrypting your data isn’t a long process, so you may not even notice that something is going on. All files that have been encrypted will have an extension attached to them. A file encrypting malicious program commonly uses strong encryption algorithms to encrypt files. In case you don’t understand what has happened, everything will become clear when a ransom note gets dropped. The creators/distributors of the ransomware will offer you a decryption tool, which you evidently have to pay for, and that isn’t suggested. Paying does not guarantee data decryption because there’s nothing stopping hackers from just taking your money, leaving your files as they are. And it is likely that the money will go into other malicious program projects, so you would be supporting their future projects. And, more and more people will become interested in the business which is believed to have made $1 billion in 2016. Investing into backup instead of complying with the requests would be a wiser idea. These kinds of situations can reoccur again, but if you had backup, file loss wouldn’t be a possibility. Our recommendation would be to don’t pay attention to the requests, and if the threat still remains on your computer, remove Australian-AES Ransomware, for which you’ll see instructions below. And attempt to familiarize with how to avoid these kinds of threats in the future, so that this does not happen.
