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 »

CovidLock Ransomware

CovidLock Ransomware is a malicious application that is targeted at Android users who are looking for information about COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Find Your Packages Promos

Find Your Packages Promos

If you need to track packages, you should be able to do that via the sellers’ or carriers’ websites. Find Your Packages Promos, however, suggests that it can help you track all parcels from various carriers using one single tracker. Doesn’t this sound amazing? Well, you cannot judge a book by its cover, and Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers suggest that trusting the initial offer of any program is the wrong move. The good news is that the extension actually informs that it can show advertisements after installation, and so those who install it must know what they are getting themselves into. However, if you did not realize that you would be flooded with ads after installing the extension, you might feel dissatisfied. In any case, there are reasons to delete Find Your Packages Promos from Google Chrome, which at the time of research, was the only browser that the extension was compatible with. If you want to understand why removing this PUP (potentially unwanted program) might be the best move, continue reading. Read more »

Ooss Ransomware

Ooss Ransomware

If your operating system is protected, Ooss Ransomware should not be able to sneak in. However, if you do not use protection tools, and if you are relying on your own ability to identify and remove malware before it is executed, it is unlikely that you will stand a chance of stopping this threat before it encrypts your personal files. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that this malware uses very sneaky ways to invade your operating system, and you are always involved in the process. For example, the infection’s launcher could be introduced via a bundled downloader as a helpful application. If you are tricked into executing this bundle, the ransomware slithers in immediately. In a different scenario, the launcher could be introduced via spam email as a document/PDF file that, allegedly, represents flight information, hotel reservation, postage delivery details, etc. If you open this file, the ransomware executes. After that, the only thing you can do is delete Ooss Ransomware. Read more »

If you interact with spam email attachments and unreliable downloaders carelessly, you could let the infection in before you know what is going on.

Remk Ransomware

Remk Ransomware

Remk Ransomware leaves an extension called .remk on the files that it encrypts, which is where its title comes from. The malware encrypts files with a secure encryption algorithm. Meaning, files affected by it cannot be restored unless you have a unique decryption key and a decryptor. While the malware’s developers seem to have such tools, they are willing to share them only with victims who pay ransom. The worst part is that even if you pay the sum they ask and on time, you cannot still be certain that the hackers will hold on to their end of the deal. Therefore, dealing with the malicious application’s creators could make matters even worse if you end up losing your money as well. To learn more about the malware, we recommend reading the rest of this article. Also, since our specialists advise deleting Remk Ransomware, we encourage you to check our removal instructions placed at the end of this page. Read more »
