How did the Llqq ransomware get on my computer?

The Llqq ransomware spreads by placing links to get hacked programs or games. Cybercriminals that distribute this ransomware are very tricky, and try to keep in touch with current things. New games releases, new popular movies – Llqq developers make whatever to get their victims on that. One of the most common tactics these criminals put to use is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. However, pursuing the modern-day trends is not the only tactic these burglars use. Options that have already become classic, 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 Llqq ransomware injection

Preventing this ransomware does not need a lot of initiative. Using the regular rules of computer hygiene will significantly minimize all hazards. Keep in mind that launching all documents you receive on e-mail is not a good habit. Even worse case is to enable macros in Microsoft Office files. But it is far better to prevent 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 expect, and also when you see things like “support@amazon.com”– it is likely a genuine email. At the same time, stuff that tries to look similar to Amazon or FedEx delivery 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.

Outlaw sources of various digital things require some additional description. Violating copyright policy already exposes you to the chance of being fined. Nonetheless, using torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs also exposes you to a wide range of malware. Nobody can oversee anonymous people that launch the torrent seeding or publish the hacked program version on the site with pirated software.
