Most antivirus programs can scan files to see if they contain ransomware before downloading. They can block malicious classified ad installations when you are surfing the Internet and looking for malware already on a computer or device.

Always install updates

Often companies release updates to fix software vulnerabilities that can be exploited for ransomware installation. Therefore, you should always download the latest version of a software as soon as it is available.

Never pay the ransom

Victims of ransomware attacks are advised not to pay the fee because it encourages attackers and can not lead to retrieval of files. There are some programs that can help decode files. Or, if you have a backup, you can restore the device from this.
