How did the Bttu ransomware get on my computer?
The Bttu ransomware spreads by posting links to download hacked programs or games. Cybercriminals that distribute this ransomware are quite foxy, and try to correspond with current things. New games introductions, new popular movies – Bttu creators make everything to get their money on that. One of the most preferred strategies these criminals utilize is one-day websites with torrent downloading links. Nonetheless, using the current trends is not the single tactic these burglars use. Methods that have already become classic, such as e-mail spamming, are likewise common for STOP/Djvu ransomware distribution.
Preventing this ransomware does not need a lot of initiative. Considering the standard principles of computer hygiene will substantially reduce all hazards. Remember that starting all documents you receive on e-mail is not a good tactic. Even worse situation is to allow macros in Microsoft Office documents. But it is far better to avoid the malware attack at the moment when you have just opened the e-mail message. Inspecting the sender’s address can say a lot about what you can expect, and when you see the thing like “email@example.com”– it is likely a trustworthy e-mail. On the other hand, stuff that tries to resemble Amazon or FedEx delivery notice, however, uses the email address of “firstname.lastname@example.org”– should make you be on the alarm. Above, you can see the example of such a message.
Illegal sources of different digital things need some additional description. Breaking copyright law surely throws you to the chance of being fined. However, using torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs also exposes you to various malware. No one can regulate anonymous people that launch the torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the website with pirated program.
