About this threat

Java NotDharma Ransomware is classified as ransomware, a file-encrypting kind of malicious program. Ransomware is classified as a very serious threat due to the fact that file-decoding is not always likely. Another reason why ransomware is thought to be so harmful is that infection is quite easy to obtain. Ransomware developers target reckless users, as infection generally enters through spam email attachments, dangerous ads and malicious downloads. After it encodes your files, it will ask that you pay a certain amount of money for a decryptor tool. The money you are asked to pay is likely to differ depending on the type of data encrypting malware has invaded your device, but should range from $50 to a couple of thousands of dollars. Paying isn’t suggested, no matter how little you are asked to pay. There’s nothing stopping criminals from simply taking your money, providing nothing in exchange. If you were left with still encrypted data after paying, you would certainly not be the first one. This type of situation could reoccur, so consider buying backup, instead of giving into the demands. From external hard drives to cloud storage, you have plenty of options, you just have to choose the correct one. And if by accident you do have backup, simply eliminate Java NotDharma Ransomware and then proceed to data restoration. This isn’t likely to be the last time malicious software will enter your device, so you ought to prepare. If you wish your system to be malware-free, it is essential to learn about malware and how to prevent them.

Data encrypting malicious software distribution methods

Ransomware generally sticks to the basic ways to spread, such as via suspicious sources for downloads, malicious adverts and infected email attachments. Sometimes, however, users get infected using more sophisticated methods.

It is possible you downloaded an infected file added to an email, which would cause the data encoding malware to start. You open the email, download and open the attachment and the data encoding malicious program is now able to begin the encoding process. It’s not actually surprising that people open the attachments, seeing as cyber crooks sometimes put in a decent amount of work in order make the emails rather convincing, mentioning money-related issues or other sensitive topics, which users are concerned with. Usage of basic greetings (Dear Customer/Member), prompts to open the attachment, and evident mistakes in grammar are what you need to be wary of when dealing with emails from unfamiliar senders that contain files. Your name would certainly be used in the greeting if the sender was from some legitimate company whose email should be opened. Huge company names like Amazon are frequently used as people know of them, thus are not afraid to open the emails. If you remember clicking on some dubious advertisements or downloading files from unreliable web pages, that is also how you could’ve picked up the infection. Be very careful about which advertisements you engage with, especially when on suspicious websites. Or you may have downloaded a ransomware-infected file from a questionable source. Avoid downloading anything from adverts, as they aren’t good sources. If a program was needed to be updated, you would be notified via the program itself, not via your browser, and commonly they update themselves anyway.

What happened to your files?

Because ransomware is able to permanently encrypt your data, it’s classified to be a highly dangerous infection. The process of encrypting your data take a very short time, so it is possible you will not even notice it. Once your files have been encrypted, you’ll notice that all affected ones have a file extension. A file encoding malicious program typically uses strong encryption algorithms to encode files. A ransom note will then appear, which should explain what has happened. The note will demand that you pay for a decoding program but complying with the demands is not recommended. Complying with the demands doesn’t necessarily mean data decryption because there is nothing preventing crooks from just taking your money, leaving your files locked. The ransom money would also likely be financing future ransomware or other malicious software projects. And, more and more people will become attracted to the already highly profitable business, which allegedly made $1 billion in 2016 alone. As we have mentioned above, a better investment would be backup, which would ensure that your data is secure. In case of a similar infection again, you could just remove it without being worried about losing your files. Our recommendation would be to do not pay attention to the requests, and if the infection is still inside on your system, terminate Java NotDharma Ransomware, for which you’ll find guidelines below. And In the future, we hope you will try to avoid these types of infections by familiarizing with their distribution ways.
