How did the Llee ransomware get on my computer?

The Llee ransomware spreads by posting links to download hacked programs or games. They try to keep their eye on all buzz topics which can be chosen to spread ransomware. New games introductions, new popular movies – Llee developers make whatever to get their money on that. Some of the most favored strategies these crooks use is one-day websites with torrent downloading links. However, using the modern trends is not the single way these crooks use. Methods that have already become classic, such as e-mail spamming, are also standard for STOP/Djvu ransomware spreading.

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

Avoiding this ransomware does not need a lot of effort. Adhering to the regular rules of computer hygiene will considerably decrease all hazards. Remember that opening all documents you get on e-mail is not a great tactic. Even worse case is to allow macros in Microsoft Office documents. However, it is better to stop the malware attack at the moment when you have only opened the email message. Inspecting the sender’s address can say a lot about what you can anticipate, and also when you see things like “support@amazon.com”– it is likely a legitimate e-mail. At the same time, stuff that tries to look similar to Amazon or FedEx delivery notification, however, uses the email address of “amazonspurrot1363@gmail.com”– need to make you be on the alarm. Above, you can see the example of such a message.

Outlaw sources of different digital things need some extra explanation. Violating copyright regulation already throws you to the chance of being fined. However, using torrent trackers or third-party sites to download “free” programs also exposes you to various malware. Nobody can control unidentified people who start the torrent seeding or publish the hacked program version on the website with pirated software.
