About this infection

NinjaLoc ransomware will lock your files, as it’s ransomware. Depending on what kind of ransomware it is, you may end up permanently losing your data. Because of this, and the fact that getting infected is pretty easy, data encrypting malware is thought to be a highly harmful infection. If you remember opening a strange email attachment, clicking on some suspicious ad or downloading a program advertised on some shady page, that is how it infected your computer. Soon after infection, the encoding process starts, and afterwards, you’ll be requested to give money in exchange for a way to decode files. How much money is requested depends on the ransomware, you might be demanded to pay $50 or the price may go up to a couple of thousands of dollars. Before you rush to pay, consider a few things. Trusting crooks to recover your data would be naive, as there is nothing stopping them from just taking your money. You can certainly encounter accounts of users not getting files back after payment, and that isn’t really shocking. It would be wiser to obtain backup with that money. From USBs to cloud storage, you have many options, you just need to choose the right one. If backup is available, recovering data won’t be a problem. These threats won’t go away any time soon, so you need to prepare yourself. If you want your computer to be infection-free, it’s crucial to learn about malware and how it could infiltrate your system.

How does ransomware spread

You typically get the ransomware when you open an infected email, tap on a malicious advert or use unreliable platforms as a source for downloads. Methods that require more ability could be used as well, however.

Since you could have gotten the data encoding malware through email attachments, try and recall if you have recently obtained a strange file from an email. Malware would attach the infected file to an email, and then send it to hundreds/thousands of users. You can commonly discover those emails in spam but some users think of them as credible and move them to the inbox, thinking it is important. In addition to grammatical mistakes, if the sender, who certainly knows your name, uses Dear User/Customer/Member and firmly encourages you to open the attachment, you have to be cautious. Your name would be inserted into the email automatically if the sender was from some legitimate company whose email should be opened. It is also pretty evident that that crooks tend to use big names like Amazon so that people become more trusting. It is also possible that you pressed on some dangerous ad when on a dubious page, or downloaded something from a suspicious page. Certain web pages might be harboring malicious advertisements, which if engaged with could trigger dangerous downloads. And when it comes to downloading something, only do it through legitimate pages. Avoid downloading anything from advertisements, as they aren’t good sources. Applications commonly update themselves, but if manual update was necessary, you would be notified via the program itself.

What happened to your files?

The reason ransomware is classified as very damaging is due to its ability to encode your data and lead to you being permanently blocked from accessing them. And the encoding process is rather quick, it is only a matter of minutes, if not seconds, for all your essential files to be locked. You’ll notice that your files have an extension attached to them, which will help you figure out which ransomware you are dealing with. Some data encrypting malicious programs do use strong encoding algorithms on your files, which is why it might be impossible to recover files for free. You will get a ransom note once the encryption process has been completed, and it should explain what you should do next. You will be offered a decryption tool but paying for it is not suggested. Remember who you are dealing with, what’s preventing crooks from simply taking your money. You would also support their, in addition to possible money loss. These types of infections are estimated to have made $1 billion in 2016, and such a profitable business will just attract more and more people.
