Vox populi

We very much hope that your Dr.Web will always be configured correctly. Please download our brochure and save it on your PC so that you can always remember which basic settings offer you maximum protection against encryption ransomware and prevent your files from becoming encrypted

“Configure Dr.Web to protect your computer from encryption ransomware” (PDF)

Encryption ransomware spreads in bulk via emails that are ostensibly from tax authorities, courts of law, and even friends. Attachments containing malware are made to look like CVs, accounting documents, etc. If you’ve received a suspicious email with an attachment, and Dr.Web didn't react to it, the attachment may contain encryption ransomware that the anti-virus doesn't yet recognise.

Send the attachment for analysis to the Doctor Web anti-virus laboratory, and wait for a reply.

By doing so, you will not only keep your files safe but also help thousands of potential cybercrime victims.
