How did the Ssoi ransomware get on my computer?
The Ssoi ransomware spreads by placing links to get hacked programs or games. Cybercriminals that distribute this ransomware are very foxy, and try to correspond with modern trends. New games introductions, new popular films – Ssoi creators make whatever to get their victims on that. Some of the most common methods these criminals utilize is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. Nonetheless, pursuing the modern-day things is not the only tactic these criminals use. Methods that have already become classic, such as email spamming, are also normal for STOP/Djvu ransomware spreading.
Preventing this ransomware does not require a lot of initiative. Considering the regular principles of computer hygiene will significantly decrease all dangers. Remember that starting all files you get on e-mail is not a good option. Even worse situation is to enable macros in Microsoft Office documents. But it is much better to avoid the malware attack 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, as well as when you see things like “firstname.lastname@example.org”– it is likely a genuine e-mail. On the other hand, stuff that tries to resemble Amazon or FedEx shipment notice, but uses the e-mail address of “email@example.com”– must make you get on the alarm. Above, you can see the example of such a message.
Outlaw sources of different digital things require some additional description. Going against copyright regulation surely throws you to the danger of being fined. Nevertheless, using torrent trackers or third-party sites to download “free” programs likewise exposes you to a wide range of malware. Nobody can oversee undisclosed people who launch the torrent seeding or publish the hacked program version on the site with pirated software.
