What is file encoding malware
Sad Computer ransomware will immediately begin encoding your files, because it is ransomware. Contamination might mean, you could permanently lose access to your data, so do not take it mildly. It is pretty easy to get contaminated, which makes it a very dangerous malware. If you have recently opened a weird email attachment, pressed on a infected advert or downloaded a program promoted on some shady web page, that is how you probably picked up the infection. After data is successfully encrypted, it’ll ask you to pay a ransom for a decryptor. You will possibly be demanded to pay a minimum of a couple hundred dollars, depending on what ransomware you have, and how much you value your data. It isn’t recommended to pay, even if you’re requested for a small sum. Considering criminals will feel no obligation to recover your data, we doubt they won’t just take your money. If you take the time to look into it, you’ll certainly find accounts of users not being able to decrypt data, even after paying. It would be better to take part of the demanded money and invest it into backup, instead. You’ll be presented with many backup options, all you need to do is pick the one best suiting you. And if by chance you do have backup, just erase Sad Computer ransomware before you recover data. This is not the last time you will get contaminated with some kind of malware, so you ought to prepare. In order to keep a system safe, one should always be on the lookout for possible malware, becoming familiar with how to avoid them.
