How did the Eijy ransomware get on my computer?

The Eijy ransomware spreads by placing websites to get hacked programs or games. They try to keep their eye on all buzz topics which can be used to spread ransomware. New games releases, new popular films – Eijy creators make whatever to get their money on that. One of the most favored techniques these crooks utilize is one-day websites with torrent downloading links. However, using the contemporary things is not the single tactic these burglars utilize. Options that have already turned into standard, such as e-mail spamming, are also ordinary for STOP/Djvu ransomware distribution.

Malicious email spam
The example of email spamming that may lead to Eijy ransomware injection

Preventing this ransomware does not need a lot of initiative. Following the regular principles of computer hygiene will substantially minimize all hazards. Bear in mind that starting all documents you get on email is not a good habit. Even worse situation is to allow macros in Microsoft Office documents. However, it is better to avoid the malware intrusion at the moment when you have just opened the email message. Checking the sender’s address can say a lot about what you can anticipate, and when you see things like “support@amazon.com”– it is likely a genuine email. At the same time, stuff that tries to look like Amazon or FedEx delivery notice, however, uses the email address of “amazonspurrot1363@gmail.com”– should make you get on the alarm. Above, you can see the example of such a message.

Outlaw sources of different digital things need some additional explanation. Going against copyright regulation surely exposes you to the chance of being fined. However, using torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs also exposes you to a wide range of malware. No one can oversee unidentified individuals that start the torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the site with pirated program.
