What is ransomware

StupidJapan Ransomware is considered to be ransomware, a kind of malicious program that will encode your files. It’s a severe infection that can leave you with encoded files and no way to get them back. Because of this, and the fact that infection happens quite easily, ransomware is thought to be a very harmful threat. If you recall opening a strange email attachment, pressing on some infected advertisement or downloading an application promoted on some shady web page, that is how it contaminated your computer. And once it’s launched, it will start encoding your data, and when the process is finished, you will be requested to buy a way to decode data, which in theory ought to decrypt your files. The ransom varies from ransomware to ransomware, some could ask for $50, while others could demand $1000. If you’re considering paying, look into other options first. Crooks will not have a moral responsibility to assist you in recovering your files, so you could end up getting nothing. If you were left with undecrypted files after paying, we wouldn’t be surprised. Investing the money you are asked for into reliable backup would be wiser. You’ll be presented with a lot of different options, but it shouldn’t be hard to choose the best option for you. And if by chance you do have backup, just uninstall StupidJapan Ransomware before you restore data. It is essential to prepare for these kinds of situations because you’ll possibly get infected again. To keep a machine safe, one should always be ready to come across potential threats, becoming informed about their spread methods.

How does ransomware spread

Generally, data encrypting malicious program is obtained when you open an infected email, press on a malicious advert or use dubious platforms as a source for downloads. Only rarely does data encoding malware use more sophisticated methods.

You probably got the infection via email attachment, which might have came from a legitimate seeming email. Crooks add an infected file to an email, which gets sent to hundreds or even thousands of people. We’re not really surprised that people open the attachments, seeing as crooks occasionally put in a decent amount of work to make the emails authentic, sometimes mentioning money and similar sensitive topics, which users are likely to panic about. The use of basic greetings (Dear Customer/Member), strong pressure to open the attachment, and obvious mistakes in grammar are what you ought to be careful of when dealing with emails from unknown senders that contain files. A company whose email is important enough to open would use your name instead of the general greeting. You might see company names such as Amazon or PayPal used in those emails, as a known name would make the email seem more real. You could have also picked up the threat through compromised adverts or bogus downloads. If you often engage with advertisements while on questionable sites, it’s not really shocking that you got your computer infected. And stick to legitimate download sources as much as possible, because otherwise you are jeopardizing your computer. You should never download anything, whether it’s software or updates, from adverts or pop-ups. Applications usually update automatically, but if manual update was needed, you would be alerted through the program, not the browser.

What does it do?

Ransomware could result in permanent data loss, which is why it is considered to be such a damaging threat. And it is only a matter of time before all your files are encrypted. What makes file encoding highly obvious is the file extension attached to all affected files, usually indicating the name of the file encoding malicious program. A file encrypting malware will use strong encryption algorithms, which may be impossible to break. A ransom note will then appear, which should explain what has happened. The note will demand that you pay for a decryption utility but we suggest you ignore the demands. Crooks might just take your money without helping you decrypt data. The ransom money would also probably be funding future data encrypting malicious program projects. By complying with the demands, people are making ransomware an increasingly more profitable business, which is thought to have earned $1 billion in 2016, and evidently that will lure many people to it. We advise you instead invest in a backup option, which would always be there if something happened to your files. And if this kind of infection reoccurred again, you would not be jeopardizing your files. If you have made the choice to not put up with the demands, you will have to terminate StupidJapan Ransomware if it is still present on the computer. And attempt to familiarize with how to avoid these kinds of threats in the future, so that you are not put in this situation again.
