How did the Bpto ransomware get on my computer?
The Bpto ransomware spreads by placing websites to download hacked programs or games. They try to keep their eye on all hype themes which can be chosen to spread ransomware. New games introductions, new popular movies – Bpto creators make everything to get their victims on that. Some of the most popular methods these crooks apply is one-day websites with torrent downloading links. However, pursuing the contemporary news is not the single way these criminals use. Ways that have already become standard, such as e-mail spamming, are likewise ordinary for STOP/Djvu ransomware spreading.
Avoiding this ransomware does not need a lot of effort. Following the ordinary principles of PC hygiene will substantially decrease all dangers. Keep in mind that opening all documents you get on e-mail is not a great tactic. Even worse situation is to allow macros in Microsoft Office documents. However, it is much better to avoid the malware intrusion at the moment when you have only opened the email message. Checking the sender’s address can say a lot about what you can expect, and also when you see the thing like “firstname.lastname@example.org”– it is likely a genuine e-mail. At the same time, stuff that tries to appear like Amazon or FedEx shipping alert, but uses the e-mail address of “email@example.com”– must make you get on the alarm. Above, you can see the illustration of such a message.
Outlaw sources of various digital things need some extra explanation. Going against copyright law already exposes you to the risk of being fined. Nevertheless, using torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs also exposes you to various malware. No one can regulate unnamed people who launch the torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the site with pirated program.
