How did the Bnrs ransomware get on my computer?
The Bnrs ransomware spreads by posting links to get hacked programs or games. Cybercriminals who distribute this ransomware are very foxy, and aim to correspond with current trends. New games releases, new popular movies – Bnrs developers make whatever to get their victims on that. Some of the most common techniques these criminals apply is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. However, following the modern-day news is not the only manner these burglars utilize. Ways that have already become standard, such as email spamming, are also usual for STOP/Djvu ransomware spreading.
Preventing this ransomware does not require a lot of initiative. Following the ordinary principles of computer hygiene will considerably decrease all dangers. Remember that launching all files you receive on e-mail is not a good tactic. Even worse case is to enable macros in Microsoft Office files. However, it is much better to stop the malware attack at the moment when you have only opened the e-mail message. Examining the sender’s address can point out a lot about what you can expect, and when you see things like “email@example.com”– it is likely a trustworthy e-mail. On the other hand, stuff that tries to appear like Amazon or FedEx delivery alert, however, uses the e-mail address of “firstname.lastname@example.org”– must make you be on the alarm. Above, you can see the example of such a message.
Outlaw sources of different digital things need some additional explanation. Breaking copyright policy surely throws you to the risk of being fined. Nevertheless, using torrent trackers or third-party sites to download “free” programs also exposes you to various malware. Nobody can oversee undisclosed individuals that launch the torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the website with pirated program.
