Eiur is file-encrypting ransomware that prevents access to your text files, Excel tables, videos and pictures by encrypting them. It marks the encrypted files with the “.eiur” extension. Then Eiur ransomware adds a ransom note (readme.txt) to each folder. In it, you can see the instructions to pay the ransom ($490-$980 in Bitcoin) to a certain Bitcoin wallet. The AES-256 or RSA-1028 cipher it utilizes to cipher the files is not decryptable with modern computers. Even quantum PCs that currently exist will spend thousands of years to get the decryption key.

How did the Eiur ransomware get on my computer?
The Eiur ransomware spreads by placing links to get hacked programs or games. They try to keep their eye on all hype topics which can be used to spread ransomware. New games introductions, new popular films – Eiur creators make whatever to get their money on that. One of the most favored methods these criminals put to use is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. However, following the modern things is not the single tactic these burglars utilize. Ways that have already turned into standard, such as email spamming, are also usual for STOP/Djvu ransomware distribution.
Preventing this ransomware does not require a lot of initiative. Following the regular principles of PC hygiene will significantly decrease all hazards. Bear in mind that launching all documents you receive on e-mail is not a good option. Even worse case is to enable macros in Microsoft Office documents. However, it is far better to prevent the malware intrusion at the moment when you have just opened the email message. Examining the sender’s address can point out a lot about what you can expect, and when you see the thing like “email@example.com”– it is likely a legitimate e-mail. At the same time, stuff that tries to look similar to Amazon or FedEx shipping notification, however, uses the email address of “firstname.lastname@example.org”– must make you be on the alarm. Above, you can see the illustration of such a message.
Outlaw sources of various digital things need some extra description. Breaking copyright law already exposes you to the danger of being fined. Nevertheless, using torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs also exposes you to a wide range of malware. Nobody can oversee undisclosed individuals that launch the torrent seeding or publish the hacked program version on the website with pirated software.
