The Bbbr ransomware spreads by placing websites to download hacked programs or games. Cybercriminals who spread this ransomware are extremely clever, and try to correspond with current trends. New games releases, new popular movies – Bbbr developers make everything to get their money on that.

Meanwhile, stuff that tries to look similar to Amazon or FedEx shipment notice, but uses the email address of “email@example.com”– need to make you get on the alarm. Above, you can see the illustration of such a message.

However, using torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs likewise exposes you to different malware. Nobody can control undisclosed people that launch the torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the site with pirated program.
