What is ransomware

Age Virus will encode your files, since it’s ransomware. Ransomware infections aren’t be taken lightly, as they could result in file loss. It is rather easy to infect your system, which only adds to why it’s so dangerous. Ransomware developers target negligent users, as infection usually occurs by opening a malicious email attachment, clicking on a dangerous advertisement or falling for bogus ‘downloads’. Once a computer is infected, the encoding process will be performed, and afterwards, you’ll be requested to give money in exchange for a way to decode data. The amount of money asked depends on the ransomware, the demands might be to pay $50 or the price may go up to a some thousands of dollars. It’s not suggested to pay, even if giving into the demands is not expensive. Considering cyber crooks will feel no obligation to recover your files, it is probable they will just take your money. You can certainly find accounts of users not getting data back after payment, and that’s not really shocking. This kind of thing may occur again or something might happen to your device, thus it would be better to invest the money into backup. You will be presented with a lot of different options, but it should not be difficult to find the best option for you. For those who did take the time to back up data before the infection took place, simply remove Age Virus and restore data from where you’re keeping them. This is not the last time you will get contaminated with some kind of malicious program, so you ought to be ready. If you wish your device to not be infected constantly, it is necessary to learn about malicious software and how it can infiltrate your system.

File encrypting malware distribution methods

does not use sophisticated infiltration methods and tends to stick to sending out emails with infected attachments, compromised adverts and infecting downloads. More sophisticated methods could be used too, however.

Since one of the ways you could have gotten the ransomware is via email attachments, try to recall if you have recently obtained a weird file from an email. Once the infected attachment is opened, the ransomware will be able to start the encryption process. Those emails normally end up in the spam folder but some people check the folder for emails that may have unintentionally landed there, and if the ransomware seems somewhat credible, they open it, without considering why it landed in spam. In addition to grammatical mistakes, if the sender, who certainly knows your name, uses Dear User/Customer/Member and strongly pressures you to open the attachment, it could be a sign that the email contains data encoding malware. A sender whose email you should certainly open would use your name instead of the regular greeting. You will also see that cyber criminals tend to use big names like Amazon so that people don’t become suspicious. Or maybe you clicked on the wrong advertisement when on a suspicious page, or downloaded something from a source that you ought to have avoided. Be very careful about which adverts you engage with, particularly when visiting dubious websites. And stick to legitimate download sources as often as possible, because otherwise you’re putting your system in danger. One thing to remember is to never acquire software, updates, or anything really, from strange sources, such as advertisements. If a program was in need of an update, you would be notified via the application itself, not via your browser, and generally they update without your intervention anyway.

What happened to your files?

The reason file encrypting malicious programs is categorized as very damaging is due to its ability to encrypt your data and lead to you being permanently blocked from accessing them. The process of encoding your data take a very short time, so you may not even notice what is going on. If other signs aren’t obvious, the weird file extension attached to the files will make everything clear. While not necessarily in every case, some ransomware do use strong encoding algorithms for file encryption, which is why it may be impossible to recover files without having to pay. If you’re confused about what has happened, a dropped ransom note should explain everything. The creators/distributors of the file encoding malware will offer you a decryption utility, which you evidently have to pay for, and that isn’t what we recommend. Remember who you are dealing with, what is there to stop crooks from simply taking your money. The money you supply crooks with would also support their future data encrypting malicious software projects. And, people will increasingly become interested in the already very profitable business, which allegedly made $1 billion in 2016 alone. A wiser investment would be a backup option, which would store copies of your files if something happened to the original. And your files wouldn’t be at risk if this type of situation occurred again. We would suggest you do not pay attention to the demands, and if the threat still remains on your system, terminate Age Virus, for which you’ll see instructions below. And attempt to familiarize with how to avoid these kinds of infection in the future, so that this doesn’t occur.

How to terminate Age Virus

You are strongly advised to get anti-malware tool to ensure the threat is gone completely. If you try to manually eliminate Age Virus, you could accidentally end up harming your computer, so doing everything yourself isn’t advised. A wiser choice would be using dependable malware removal software. The software would find and remove Age Virus. If you scroll down, you will see guidelines, in case you aren’t sure about how to proceed. Keep in mind that the program will not help with file decryption, all it will do is ensure the infection is gone. But, you should also keep in mind that some ransomware is decryptable, and malware researchers may develop free decryptors.
