Update Windows, and keep checking for new system updates. Install adblocker for browser and don't open emails from unknown senders.

Just preventive maintenance.. That's windows update and not clicking on everything you see on internet :)

Update Windows, and keep checking for new system updates. Install adblocker for browser and don't open emails from unknown senders.

Additionally, don't be fooled by the display name of the email. Check the domain and respond.

E.g. [email protected] is not a genuine email, but its display name will be paypal corp, similar to that of real paypal communications

Just be vigilant.

Is it mainly spread from emails? How about through usb drives?
