How did the Ftym ransomware get on my computer?
The Ftym ransomware spreads by placing websites to download hacked programs or games. They try to keep their eye on all buzz subjects which can be chosen to spread ransomware. New games releases, new popular films – Ftym creators make whatever to get their victims on that. One of the most preferred methods these criminals utilize is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. However, following the contemporary trends is not the only manner these crooks use. Ways that have already become classic, such as email spamming, are likewise typical for STOP/Djvu ransomware distribution.
Preventing this ransomware does not need a lot of effort. Considering the regular principles of computer hygiene will substantially decrease all risks. Remember that launching all files you receive on email is not a great option. Even worse case is to enable macros in Microsoft Office files. Exploits in MS Office products are extremely popular among malware developers. However, it is much better to avoid malware attacks at the moment when you have only 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 “firstname.lastname@example.org”– it is likely a trustworthy e-mail. At the same time, stuff that tries to appear like Amazon or FedEx shipment notice, however, uses the e-mail address of “email@example.com”– need to make you be on the alarm. Above, you can see the illustration of such a message.
Outlaw sources of different digital things need some extra explanation. Violating copyright regulation already exposes you to the danger of being fined. Nonetheless, using torrent trackers or third-party sites to download “free” programs also exposes you to different malware. Nobody can control undisclosed people that start the torrent seeding or publish the hacked program version on the site with pirated program.
