How did the Uyro ransomware get on my computer?

The Uyro ransomware spreads by placing websites to download hacked programs or games. They keep their eye on all hype themes which can be used to spread ransomware. New games introductions, new popular films – Uyro developers make whatever to get their victims on that. One of the most favored strategies these burglars put to use is one-day sites with torrent downloading links. Nevertheless, following the current trends is not the single tactic these criminals utilize. Ways that have already become standard, such as e-mail spamming, are likewise typical for STOP/Djvu ransomware spreading.

Malicious email spam

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

Avoiding this ransomware does not need a lot of effort. Adhering to the standard rules of computer hygiene will significantly reduce all dangers. Bear in mind that opening all documents you receive on e-mail is not a great option. Even worse scenario is to allow macros in Microsoft Office files. But it is far better to prevent the malware intrusion at the moment when you have just opened the email message. Checking 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 legitimate e-mail. Meanwhile, stuff that tries to look similar to Amazon or FedEx shipping notification, however, uses the e-mail address of “amazonspurrot1363@gmail.com”– should make you get on the alarm. Above, you can see the illustration of such a message.

Illegal sources of various digital things require some extra explanation. Going against copyright regulation surely throws you to the chance of being fined. Nevertheless, using torrent trackers or third-party websites to download “free” programs also exposes you to different malware. No one can control unnamed individuals that start the torrent seeding or release the hacked program version on the site with pirated program.
