Methods used to spread malware
The main technique used by the ransomware developers involves malicious scripts added on some Microsoft Office File or PDF Document and offered them to download on various spam emails as attachments, by disguising as legit notifications about invoices, orders, shopping or other delivers. When users open the attachments, the malicious scripts are triggered and the payloads get loaded on the system. Thus, there are just a few minutes between the email notification opening and the lockscreen appearance. Better, if you are cautious about such possibilities.
