Spam email attachments can download ransomware to the system

Dealing with ransomware is dangerous because the virus can initiate numerous file encryption processes. As we always advise, you should pay more attention to processes running on your computer. Besides, pay attention to what you are opening or downloading on the system because various malware-filled files are hiding on the Internet. These infected files might be attached to an email or be directly downloaded from the deceptive advertisement or website. 

To avoid these spam infections, you should look for certain signs, like grammar mistakes or subject lines about financial information. MS Word or Excel file can load direct ransomware on the device or spread different malware that infects the system further.

Clean your email box more thoroughly and avoid opening emails from unknown senders. Also make sure that you:

  • Check the subject line for “invoice” and similar phrases. If you haven't ordered anything – delete the email.
  • Read the sender's name. You shouldn't get any emails from legitimate services you do not use.
  • Answer the sender. If this is a spam campaign, not a legit company your answer goes nowhere.
  • Look for mismatches. If the format of the attached file and the name of the document or service doesn't match up, it is fake.
