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

How dangerous is the Ifla ransomware?

When Ifla ransomware gets in your system, it will scan your system for images, videos, and important documents. It encrypt] all widespread file formats- .psd, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .pdf, .jpeg, .png, et cetera. When these files are found, the ransomware will encrypt them and change their extension to “.ifla” to make sure that you understand what happened.

How did the Ifla ransomware get on my computer?

The Ifla ransomware spreads by placing links to download hacked programs or games. They keep their eye on all buzz topics which can be used to spread ransomware. New games introductions, new popular films – Ifla developers make everything to get their money on that. One of the most common strategies these burglars put to use is one-day websites with torrent downloading links. Nevertheless, pursuing the modern-day things is not the single tactic these criminals use. Methods that have already turned into standard, such as e-mail spamming, are likewise typical for STOP/Djvu ransomware distribution.

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

Avoiding this ransomware does not need a lot of effort. Considering the regular rules of computer hygiene will noticeably minimize all dangers. Bear in mind that launching all files you receive on email is not a great option. Even worse scenario is to allow macros in Microsoft Office files. But it is better to avoid the malware attack at the moment when you have just opened the email message. Inspecting the sender’s address can say a lot about what you can anticipate, as well as when you see things like “support@amazon.com”– it is likely a legitimate email. Meanwhile, stuff that tries to look similar to Amazon or FedEx delivery notice, but uses the e-mail address of “amazonspurrot1363@gmail.com”– need to make you be on the alarm. Above, you can see the illustration of such a message.

Outlaw sources of various digital things need some additional description. Violating copyright law already throws you to the possibility of being fined. However, utilizing torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs also exposes you to various malware. Nobody can control unidentified people who launch the torrent seeding or publish the hacked program version on the site with pirated program.
