How did I get infected with?

The shortest answer is that you accidentally clicked something you shouldn’t click. Ccps infections are caused by careless behavior. They send phishing messages disguised as legitimate ones and prompt people to click links or download files. They can also resort to the old, but gold, invasive methods, like free software and fake bogus updates. You might think you’re updating Java, but you’d actually be opening up a security hole. Beware of everything you click! The internet is full of dangers, and cyber attacks lurk everywhere. Before agreeing to any terms and conditions, check out the spam filter and install software from vetted websites. Do your research before making any decisions. Ransomware attacks are often spread using social engineering. A hacker or a group of hackers sends millions of emails to people on the internet, hoping that a few will click on the infected attachment or link. You may also come across malware lurking on torrent sites, fake software updates and pornography websites.


Why is .Ccps File Extension dangerous?

Ransomware is particularly dangerous for two reasons:

  • First, it encrypts your data and locks them away behind strong password protection.
  • Second, the hackers behind ransomware may not unlock your files even after you pay the ransom.

Avoid opening email attachments from unknown sources. Ransomware typically gets onto your computer when you open a Word attachment that contains malicious Visual Basic code or a PDF file with an embedded exploit. Once the ransomware encrypts your data, you face a choice. The criminals behind ransomware will email you a password that unlocks your data. The problem is, if you pay the ransom, there is no guarantee that they will actually unlock your data or provide the password. In some cases, the cybercriminals will take your money but not unlock your files.

Do not pay for Sspq!

Please, try to use the available backups, or Decrypter tools
