The Ramachandra7@india.com virus possibly has a few ways of delivery. Targeted attacks or spam emails may be the most frequent ways of delivering the malware.

Such an attachment might seem normal, but if you make the mistake of opening it, the file drops the payload for the ransomware which infects your PC. Beware of such scams while browsing the Web and looking over emails, especially if they have files attached.
Social media services and sites for file-sharing are two other ways of delivery for the Ramachandra7@india.com virus. The payload file containing a malicious script wrapped as an executable could be spread on the networks mentioned above, presented as something needed. The advice you should follow for preventing ransomware from infecting your computer is to avoid dubious emails, files, and links. Before opening files, check their size, signatures and possibly scan them with a security program. You can read about more tips for preventing ransomware infections in our forum.
