Doctor Web statistics

The first encryption ransomware appeared. And now several thousand modifications exist.

In over 90% of incidents, users themselves launch ransomware on their computers.

The probability of restoring corrupted files is roughly 10%

Worth knowing

No anti-virus can, at any point in time, detect all malicious programs.

This means that any system can be infected by new, unknown ransomware.

To keep your files safe from Trojans:

  • Use the latest version of your anti-virus
  • Never disable the anti-virus.
  • If it incorporates proactive protection features, never toggle them off
  • Enable and configure the Data Loss Prevention feature (if you have a license for Dr.Web Security Space) or use backups. All the terms

If you don't follow these rules and your system gets infected, you will have only yourself to blame, not the anti-virus.

The rules of “basic hygiene”

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 at, and wait for a reply.

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

Send suspicious file

Data Loss Prevention is included in Dr.Web Security Space and it is also available to Dr.Web Anti-virus service subscribers (the Dr.Web Premium package).
