BDDY File Virus – Matrix Ransomware

What Is It and How Did I Get It?

The BDDY ransomware is most commonly spread by means of a payload dropper. It runs the malicious script that eventually installs the file virus. The threat circulates actively on the web, considering the facts about the ransomware mentioned in the VirusTotal database. The BDDY ransomware may also promote its payload files through popular social networks and via file-sharing platforms.
