Written by William Reddy

The AES-256 or RSA-1028 cipher it uses to cipher the documents is not decryptable with contemporary computers.

How did the Uyit ransomware get on my computer?

The Uyit ransomware spreads by placing websites to get hacked programs or games. They keep their eye on all hype subjects which can be used to spread ransomware. New games releases, new popular films – Uyit creators make whatever to get their money on that. One of the most preferred strategies these burglars use is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. Nevertheless, following the modern-day news is not the single manner these crooks use. Ways that have already become standard, such as email spamming, are also normal for STOP/Djvu ransomware spreading.

Malicious email spam

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

Avoiding this ransomware does not need a lot of effort. Considering the standard principles of computer hygiene will considerably minimize all risks. Remember that opening all documents you receive on e-mail is not a great tactic. Even worse scenario is to enable macros in Microsoft Office files. But it is better to prevent the malware intrusion at the moment when you have just opened the e-mail message. Inspecting the sender’s address can say a lot about what you can anticipate, as well as when you see things like “support@amazon.com”– it is likely a legitimate email. On the other hand, stuff that tries to appear like Amazon or FedEx shipping alert, but uses the email address of “amazonspurrot1363@gmail.com”– need to make you get on the alarm. Above, you can see the illustration of such a message.

Illegal sources of various digital things need some extra description. Violating copyright policy surely throws you to the risk of being fined. However, using torrent trackers or third-party sites to download “free” programs also exposes you to various malware. No one can oversee unidentified individuals that start the torrent seeding or publish the hacked program version on the site with pirated program.
