There is no easier way to send a malware than through an email. ransomware can be compressed in less than 1MB, which is a size that most email services allow for attachments. Hackers are skillful at masking the email 'from' address to someone you probably know or trust, like your bank, or a friend or family member.
SEEK & DESTROY
Once the attachment is opened and executed, it will usually show a web page with promotional offerings, such as a vacation package, discount coupon or a big online sale. But, this is only a decoy to capture your attention while the real ransomware is discretely scanning your system and encrypting your files.
When the malware finishes, a prompt will flash on the screen letting you know that the system has been infected and the only way to get access to your files is to enter the decryption key, which you must pay a ransom by a specified deadline to obtain. The prompt has a timer that shows every second lapsing. Ignoring the deadline can either double the ransom or delete your files entirely.
