How did the Enus ransomware get on my computer?

The Enus ransomware spreads by posting websites to get hacked programs or games. Cybercriminals who distribute this ransomware are quite tricky, and aim to correspond with current trends. New games releases, new popular movies – Enus creators make everything to get their victims on that. Some of the most popular tactics these criminals utilize is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. Nonetheless, pursuing the modern things is not the single manner these criminals use. Methods that have already become standard, such as e-mail spamming, are likewise common for STOP/Djvu ransomware distribution.

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

Preventing this ransomware does not need a lot of effort. Using the ordinary principles of PC hygiene will substantially reduce all risks. Keep in mind that starting all files you receive on e-mail is not a good idea. Even worse scenario is to enable macros in Microsoft Office documents. However, it is far better to stop the malware intrusion at the moment when you have just opened the e-mail message. Examining the sender’s address can point out a lot about what you can expect, and also when you see things like “support@amazon.com”– it is likely a genuine email. On the other hand, stuff that tries to look like Amazon or FedEx shipping alert, but uses the email address of “amazonspurrot1363@gmail.com”– must make you get on the alarm. Above, you can see the illustration of such a message.

Illegal sources of various digital things need some extra explanation. Going against copyright regulation already throws you to the danger of being fined. Nevertheless, using torrent trackers or third-party sites to download “free” programs also exposes you to a wide range of malware. Nobody can oversee anonymous individuals that launch the torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the website with pirated program.
