Researchers have managed to detect a new type of ransomware for Windows 10 that masks inside Windows Explorer to infect computers, both home and business.
Now a strain of Mailto ransomware, known by its own creators as NetWalker, has been discovered in recent weeks by injecting malicious code into the Windows Explorer process so that any antivirus is not able to detect or eliminate it. This is an evolution of NetWalker ransomware that was already detected for the first time in August 2019, but now it not only focuses its attacks on home users but also on business.
Specifically, NetWalker ransomware uses the process emptying technique that is not detected, by allocating the memory of a suspended state process and replacing it with malicious code. Now with this new strain, NetWalker is using debug mode to go unnoticed.
While researchers are collecting information about this new infection, it seems that the most likely way for your computer to become infected would be through phishing emails with attachments or by clicking links in the message text. Therefore, the tips for these types of threats are common sense, and never download an attachment or click on an email link that we don't know.

Ransomware

However, most of the emails that carry these types of threats are those of banks where they impersonate our bank so that we press some kind of link, fearing that our credit card has been blocked or that they have frozen our account.
Our bank will never contact us via email, and they will always do so through notifications when we access the bank's page with our username and password. Sometimes you can receive a phone call, but it is advisable that before answering you check if that number belongs to your branch.
The ransomware attack is one of the most common and dangerous that both companies and users are receiving, and what it does is encrypt the fundamental files of our computer so that we cannot work with it. According to the FBI, ransomware has cost both individuals and businesses about $ 3.5 billion in payments in 2019, and they warn us that we should never pay this kind of reward.
