What is D2+D ransomware virus?

D2+D aims to become full-fledged ransomware

D2+D virus, alternatively known as WindowsApp1 malware, attempts to deceive users that it is a real file-encrypting threat. It generates its graphic user interface (GUI) which informs users that their files have been encrypted. According to the content, it seems that the malware is quite friendly. It offers 50% discount for victims with low income. In a mocking manner, the penetrators ask victims to donate to their D2+D ransom project. Luckily this malware is none other than fake ransomware and behaves more like a screen locker. There is no need to pay $100 to the hackers, but instead, remove D2+D virus and unlock the screen. Interestingly, the ransomware is also affiliated with a scam version of Facebook – http://bobdinh.hol.es. As for the elimination, you may use FortectIntego or Malwarebytes.

This malware manifests that hackers of various ilk are tempted by the idea to earn easy money through ransomware. The emergence of WannaCry[1] malware served as the inspiration for hackers and crooks to join the market. Despite a hike in WannaCry imitations, there is also an increase in an overall number of viruses[2]. Though screen lockers comprise a smaller share of the overall malware rate, some of them are more elaborate. In D2+D malware case, it fails to wreak havoc on the system as it is easily decryptable. Usually, malware sneaks into the computer via a spam email and encodes files with RSA-2048 or AES-128 algorithms. The data is encoded with the public key and for the private key, which is mathematically interrelated with the former code, is required for data decryption. However, this malware functions otherwise. Despite its alarming message, it mainly locks your computer. Furthermore, the developers of this malware target more naive users who might risk remitting the payment. Though the virus is still not detected by all types of anti-virus tools, it might be easily terminated. Thus, proceed to D2+D removal.

Ways to hack into systems

One of the key reasons why ransomware remains one of the most destructive and relevant issues is its wide network of distribution. Usually, it is spread with the assistance of spam emails, exploit kits, fake app updates, or browser plug-ins. In this case, D2+D hijack is also performed with by a trojan. Besides having proper anti-virus and firewall protection, it is of key importance to remain vigilant. Do not rush to click on an odd link received from a friend via Skype or email message which is a supposed warning from the FBI.

How to prevent from getting ransomware

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
