I received a spoof from Amazon and a phony charge. Not knowing what it was for, I tried to cancel it, but Gridinsoft said it was unsafe and didn't let me go further. I contacted Amazon Support and spoke to a representative who agreed it was a spoof, and I am glad Gridinsoft was there to help me and confirm it was not Amazon but a spoof. I changed my password, and I sent the email to Amazon for their fraud department.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of questions and answers related to ransomware.

What is ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents you from accessing your computer or personal files and demands a ransom payment to regain access. Ransomware can also compromise cybersecurity by gaining access to your network and infecting other devices.
How can I prevent ransomware?
The best way to avoid ransomware and other malware is to use a powerful anti-ransomware tool while practicing safe online habits, such as choosing not to click on strange links or download unknown files.
How does ransomware work?
Ransomware enters your network or computer in a variety of ways, the most popular is a download via spam or pirated software. Typically, the ransomware infects a PC by an executable file that may have been in a zip archive, embedded within a Microsoft Office document's macros. Next, ransomware encrypts your data, adds an extension to your files, and makes them inaccessible.
How to protect against ransomware in Windows 10?
First, don't visit unsafe, suspicious, or fake websites. Don't open file attachments that you weren't expecting or from people you do not know. Don't open malicious or suspicious links in emails, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media posts. For Windows 10 or 11 - turn on "Controlled Folder Access" to protect your important local folders from ransomware. Turn on "On-Run Protection" in Gridinsoft Anti-malware.
What if it's too late?
If all your files are encrypted, it might not be too late! For certain kinds of ransomware, there are free decryption tools available online. And don't worry about the claims that these tools will damage your files, as that's just a bluff to try to get you to pay up.
What to do if you already paid a ransom?
If you've already paid the ransom, try to contact your bank. If you paid with a credit card, your bank might be able to block the transaction and return your money.
