Mespinoza Ransomware

Mespinoza Ransomware

Mespinoza Ransomware is very dangerous, and if you make the mistake of letting this malware into your operating system, you are likely to find most of your personal files encrypted. Needless to say, you are unlikely to let this malware in knowingly, but cybercriminals know the tricks and the backdoors that can be used to help the distribution of malware. For example, cybercriminals know that many people continue to be careless with spam emails. They open them, they read them, and if the message is convincing enough, they might be tricked into opening the attached file. As you might have gathered already, this file represents malware. Once the file is opened, the path for malware to slither in is cleared, and if security software is not set up to look out for you and delete infections before they are executed, the attack is underway. Sadly, once personal files are encrypted, they cannot be restored. You cannot salvage them even by removing Mespinoza Ransomware. Read more »

AIR Ransomware

AIR Ransomware

AIR Ransomware was created to encrypt files. Unfortunately, it can encrypt 181 different types of files, among which we have .doc, .docx, .png, .gif, .raw, .jar, .java, .uot, .stw, .sxw, .ott, .odt, .pem, .p12, .csr, .crt, .key, .pfx, .der, .dat, and many other types. When files are encrypted, they cannot be restored manually. Furthermore, tools that could do it automatically did not exist at the time of research. In some cases, free decryptors are created to crack the encryptors used by malware, but that does not happen too often. If you decide to look for a tool like that, make sure that you are careful because it is possible that you could end up installing something that is not only useless but also malicious. As you might have figured out yourself, you cannot restore files by removing AIR Ransomware. Nonetheless, you want to delete this infection, and you want to get it done fast. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has analyzed this malware for you, and we are ready to assist you. Read more »

Dishwasher Ransomware

Dishwasher Ransomware

Dishwasher Ransomware has nothing to do with home appliances. In fact, we do not know how the creator of this malware came up with this name, but it is included in its code. Also, when we tested the infection, it was also the name of the launcher file. Of course, when this malware invades your operating system, it is likely to use a completely random name to ensure that it stays hidden, undetected, and, of course, un-removed. At the time of analysis, the infection appeared to be in development stages, but we want to discuss it to, hopefully, warn Windows users before it is too late. After all, it is much easier to keep this malware away than it is to deal with it once it attacks. We specifically warn all Windows users about spam emails and bundled downloaders that could be set up to spread malware. Please make sure you are cautious. If you are not, you might need to delete Dishwasher Ransomware from your operating system, and when you do that, your files might remain encrypted. Read more »

Sorryforthis Ransomware

Sorryforthis Ransomware

It may seem as if the developers of Sorryforthis Ransomware feel bad about encrypting their victims’ data, but it is doubtful. Hackers behind such threats know that they might lock precious files like photos or videos that some users might be unable to restore, and yet they chose to make their living this way. Thus, it would be unwise to think that cybercriminals care about what happens to their victims’ memories, important documents, and so on. All they do care about is getting paid and convincing users to pay as fast as possible. For this reason, the malware was programmed to display a window that explains how to pay a ransom and shows the time remaining to do so. More details about the malware’s working manner are available in the rest of this article. Also, if you decide to remove Sorryforthis Ransomware, you might be interested in manual deletion instructions that we offer a bit below the text. Read more »
