This threat uses an infected Microsoft Office file to download ransomware and other malware onto your PC.
It can arrive on your PC as spam email attachment, usually as a Word file (.doc).
The trend towards increasingly sophisticated malware behavior, highlighted by the use of exploits and other attack vectors, makes older platforms so much more susceptible to ransomware attacks. From June to November 2017, Windows 7 devices were 3.4 times more likely to encounter ransomware compared to Windows 10 devices.
