How did the Qqqr ransomware get on my computer?
The Qqqr ransomware spreads by placing websites to download hacked programs or games. They try to keep their eye on all hype topics which can be chosen to spread ransomware. New games releases, new popular movies – Qqqr creators make whatever to get their money on that. One of the most common techniques these burglars utilize is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. Nevertheless, pursuing the contemporary news is not the single tactic these crooks use. Options that have already become standard, such as e-mail spamming, are also usual for STOP/Djvu ransomware spreading.
Preventing this ransomware does not require a lot of initiative. Using the standard principles of computer hygiene will considerably minimize all hazards. Bear in mind that opening all documents you receive on e-mail is not a great idea. Even worse situation is to enable macros in Microsoft Office documents. But it is far better to prevent the malware intrusion 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 “email@example.com”– it is likely a genuine email. At the same time, stuff that tries to look similar to Amazon or FedEx shipment notification, but uses the email address of “firstname.lastname@example.org”– need to make you be on the alarm. Above, you can see the example of such a message.
Illegal sources of various digital things need some extra description. Going against copyright regulation already throws you to the possibility of being fined. Nonetheless, utilizing torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs also exposes you to a wide range of malware. No one can regulate unnamed individuals that launch the torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the site with pirated program.
