How to prevent a
ransomware attack?

1. Back-up! Back-up! Back-up! Have a recovery system in
place so a ransomware infection can’t destroy your personal data forever. It’s
best to create two back-up copies: one to be stored in the cloud (remember to
use a service that makes an automatic backup of your files) and one to store physically
(portable hard drive, thumb drive, extra laptop, etc.). Disconnect these from
your computer when you are done. Your back up copies will also come in handy
should you accidentally delete a critical file or experience a hard drive

2. Use robust antivirus software to protect your system from
ransomware. Do not switch off the ‘heuristic functions’ as these help the
solution to catch samples of ransomware that have not yet been formally

3. Keep all the software on your computer up to date. When
your operating system (OS) or applications release a new version, install it.
And if the software offers the option of automatic updating, take it.

4. Trust no one. Literally. Any account can be compromised,
and malicious links can be sent from the accounts of friends on social media,
colleagues or an online gaming partner. Never open attachments in emails from
someone you don’t know. Cybercriminals often distribute fake email messages
that look very much like email notifications from an online store, a bank, the
police, a court or a tax collection agency, luring recipients into clicking on
a malicious link and releasing the malware into their system.

5. Enable the ‘Show file extensions’ option in the Windows
settings on your computer. This will make it much easier to spot potentially
malicious files. Stay away from file extensions like ‘.exe’, ‘.vbs’ and ‘.scr’.
Scammers can use several extensions to disguise a malicious file as a video,
photo, or document (like hot-chics.avi.exe or doc.scr).

6. If you discover a rogue or unknown process on your
machine, disconnect it immediately from the internet or other network
connections (such as home Wi-Fi) — this will prevent the infection from
