Cerber Ransomware

Cerber Ransomware

Cerber Ransomware is a devious Windows infection that enters your operating system using clandestine methods. Whether this program slithers in via a corrupted spam email attachment or gets downloaded by a malicious installer, it will hide itself until all of your personal files are encrypted. If this malicious infection successfully encrypts your personal files, it can proceed to demand a ransom from you. According to our research, at the moment, this ransom is 1.24 BTC, which is around 507 USD or 463 EUR. Every user is given 7 days to make the payment, and, if the payment is not made, the ransom supposedly rises to 2.48 BTC (~1014 USD/925 EUR). Note that the Bitcoin currency is quite unstable and the currency ratios fluctuate frequently. All in all, the sums are high, and it is unlikely that many victims have this kind of money lying around. Unfortunately, at the moment, it is impossible to decrypt personal files in other ways, which means that paying the ransom might be the only way to regain control over your files. Of course, this does not change the fact that you must remove Cerber Ransomware. Read more »

CrazyCrypt Ransomware

CrazyCrypt Ransomware

CrazyCrypt Ransomware can cause a lot of problems as the malicious application is capable not only of encrypting user’s files but also of disabling various features and modifying Registry entries. After encrypting targeted data (e.g., pictures, photos, documents, and so on), the threat should show a warning asking to contact the malware’s developers. The message should also mention the user can decrypt his data only after paying a ransom. To those who do not want to comply with the demands, the cybercriminals threaten to delete their unique decryption keys and erase some of the encrypted files permanently. Needless to say that without decryption tools the affected data is useless in any case, so if you are not planlning on paying the ransom, you should not worry about it getting erased. Our specialists say making the payment could end up badly as the hackers cannot be trusted. Thus, we advise not to risk your money and remove CrazyCrypt Ransomware with the instructions available below the article or a reliable security tool. Read more »

QuickLogin

QuickLogin

QuickLogin is an extension for your Chrome and Firefox browsers that is supposed to make it easier for you to access your email accounts. The extension should interest only those who have multiple accounts with multiple service providers. Even in that case, the extension is pretty useless because it displays easy-access links to Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Outlook login pages only. This is one of the reasons we identify this extension as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. According to our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, it is extremely important to weigh all pros and cons before you decide if this allegedly useful extension is worth your trust. We know for a fact that it was built by the same party who created Search Manager, which is yet another potentially unwanted program. Needless to say, it is strange that the same company is linked to two suspicious programs. That is not a good sign. Of course, we want you to decide for yourself if you should trust or remove QuickLogin. Continue reading to learn more. Read more »
