How did the Tcvp ransomware get on my computer?

The Tcvp ransomware spreads by placing links to download hacked programs or games. Cybercriminals who spread this ransomware are very foxy, and try to correspond with the latest trends. New games releases, new popular movies – Tcvp creators make everything to get their money on that. Some of the most popular methods these criminals apply is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. However, using the modern-day news is not the only tactic these crooks use. Options that have already become classic, such as e-mail spamming, are likewise usual for STOP/Djvu ransomware distribution.

Malicious email spam

The example of email spamming that may lead to Tcvp ransomware injection

Avoiding this ransomware does not need a lot of effort. Adhering to the regular principles of computer hygiene will substantially minimize all risks. Bear in mind that starting all documents you get on email is not a good tactic. Even worse scenario is to allow macros in Microsoft Office files. But it is far better to stop the malware intrusion at the moment when you have only opened the email message. Examining the sender’s address can point out a lot about what you can anticipate, as well as when you see things like “support@amazon.com”– it is likely a legit email. At the same time, stuff that tries to look similar to Amazon or FedEx shipment notice, but uses the e-mail address of “amazonspurrot1363@gmail.com”– should make you get on the alarm. Above, you can see the example of such a message.

Outlaw sources of different digital things need some extra explanation. Breaking copyright law already throws you to the chance of being fined. Nonetheless, utilizing torrent trackers or third-party sites to download “free” programs likewise exposes you to a wide range of malware. No one can control anonymous people who start the torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the site with pirated software.
