Protecting Your Data from Threats Like the DESYNC Ransomware

Computer users are instructed by the experts not to pay the DESYNC Ransomware ransom or contact the criminals responsible for the attack. Since the DESYNC Ransomware encryption makes the files unrecoverable without the decryption key, the best protection against threats like the DESYNC Ransomware is to have backups of your files stored on protected locations such as the cloud or an external memory device. Apart from file backups, computer users also should use a security program to prevent threats like the DESYNC Ransomware from being installed in the first place.
