Data encrypting malicious program distribution ways

Users normally corrupt their devices with ransomware via malicious email attachments, interacting with malicious ads and downloading from sources they shouldn’t. That doesn’t mean more skillful cyber criminals won’t use methods that require more ability.

Remember if you have recently visited the spam section of your email inbox and downloaded one of the attachments in those dubious emails. Malicious program would attach the infected file to an email, and then send it to hundreds/thousands of users. You may normally discover those emails in spam but some users check the folder for emails that may have accidentally ended up there, and if the data encrypting malicious software looks somewhat legitimate, they open it, without thinking about reasons why it may have ended up in spam. Usage of basic greetings (Dear Customer/Member), prompts to open the attachment, and obvious mistakes in grammar are what you need to look out for when dealing with emails from unfamiliar senders that contain files. Your name would definitely be used in the greeting if the sender was from some legitimate company whose email should be opened. Expect to see company names such as Amazon or PayPal used in those emails, as known names would make people trust the email more. Infected advertisements and bogus downloads might also lead to an infection. Be very cautious about which ads you engage with, especially when visiting suspicious web pages. Or you might have acquired the ransomware along with some program you downloaded from an unreliable source. You should never download anything, whether it is programs or updates, from ads or pop-ups. If an application was in need of an update, it would alert you via the program itself, and not through your browser, and most update without your intervention anyway.
