Trojan.Redgamble

You do not want Trojan.Redgamble invading your operating system because if it does, it can steal highly personal information in a completely clandestine manner. This infection does not need to trick you into giving this information up, as it can use its own elements to steal this information illegally. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, the infection can record data and capture screenshots to obtain even more information. The strange thing is that this malicious infection appears to have been created for the collection of very specific information. Do you play online gambling games, such as poker? If you do, you are the target of this Trojan. Of course, we cannot refute the possibility that other types of personal information could not be recorded by the infection, and that gives an additional push to remove it. Are you afraid you cannot delete Trojan.Redgamble from your operating system manually? Do not worry about this. We’ve got you. Of course, if we fail to answer all your questions in this report, you can always post your comments below. Read more »

Mimicry Ransomware

Mimicry Ransomware might not look like much of a dangerous threat until it unleashes its malicious spell upon your computer. Perhaps you can already tell from its name that this program has something to do with a ransom.

The point is that this infection holds your files “hostage” until you supposedly transfer the ransom fee. However, we would like to point out that paying the ransom does not guarantee this program would “release” your files. Hence, you should focus on removing Mimicry Ransomware from your system, and the idea of paying the ransom should not even cross your mind. Read more »

FoxRansom Ransomware

FoxRansom Ransomware

FoxRansom Ransomware is a threat our specialists have discovered only recently. It might make your files inaccessible even though it did not lock personal data at the time of research, they say. This might happen if the ransomware infection is ever updated. You cannot keep malware active on your system no matter which version of it you encounter because the presence of bad software might result in the entrance of other threats and other privacy and security-related problems. Therefore, you must erase FoxRansom Ransomware from your system immediately after having discovered it active on your computer. It seems that this threat is still in development, specialists at anti-spyware-101.com say. As mentioned, it did not encrypt files at the time of analysis. Second, it drops a ransom note that does not demand money, which is quite surprising because ransomware-type infections are mainly used to steal money from users. Since FoxRansom Ransomware does not seem to be sophisticated malware, you should not find its removal complicated, especially if you let our removal guide help you. Read more »

WeatherBlink Toolbar

Your homepage and New Tab page have been changed to a page with the WeatherBlink logo not without reason. WeatherBlink Toolbar must have been installed on your computer.

According to them, WeatherBlink Toolbar should be categorized as a potentially unwanted application.

Zoldon Ransomware

Zoldon Ransomware

Do you know what a file-encryptor is? It is an infection that encrypts files. Zoldon Ransomware is not an infection capable of doing that, although it ties to trick victims into thinking that it is. At best, it is a screen-locker, but it fails at that also. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers, it is possible to close the window via the Task Bar or the Task Manager to inspect the allegedly corrupted files. This step is exceptionally important because you want to see what damage was or was not done before you pay attention to the demands that cyber criminals have. If you check your files, it should become obvious very quickly that your personal files are fine and that you do not need to worry about permanent encryption. That being said, even if your files are not encrypted, you want to remove malware that has invaded your operating system. We have a few useful tips for you that will help delete Zoldon Ransomware from the Windows operating system with ease. Read more »

PTP Ransomware

PTP Ransomware

If you live in Korea, PTP Ransomware is an infection you need to put on your radar. At the time of analysis, Anti-Spyware-101.com research team determined that the infection was not fully developed or was buggy, which indicates that it is not a real danger yet. That being said, a new, more powerful version could be released at any point, and you might already be dealing with a fully functional version of this malware by the time you are reading this report.

If this is conformed, the report will be updated to provide you with the latest information. For now, let’s discuss the potential of the threat and its removal. If you are interested in learning how to delete PTP Ransomware manually or with the help of software, this is the article for you. Read more »

NSB Ransomware

NSB Ransomware is a troublesome file-encrypting threat because it not only ruins the user’s data but also locks his screen. As a consequence, the user cannot access the computer. Our specialists say users can get rid of the locked screen if they restart the computer in Safe Mode and remove the malicious program. Sadly, the files will remain to be enciphered even if the malware is no longer on the system. Therefore, some users might consider paying to hackers since the message they leave behind states that all will go back to normal soon after the victim pays them a particular amount of Bitcoins. What is interesting is the hackers are trying to convince their victims that they have broken specific laws and they ask to pay not a ransom, but a fine. Nevertheless, we do not think many users might fall for such a scam. Those of you who have no intention to put up with any demands could erase NSB Ransomware while looking at the deletion instructions located at the end of this page. However, if you would prefer to get to know the malware better first, you should read the rest of this article. Read more »

Search4Musix

Search4Musix

Search4Musix is not a helpful application, regardless of what its creators say. And they say that you can find music directly from your web browser’s address bar using it. Although that is not exactly a lie, some users get the idea that they can listen to any song they want as if they were streaming Spotify or iTunes, and it is impossible to compare this potentially unwanted program (PUP) with a legitimate and trustworthy streaming service provider. Although that is the main reason we classify this extension as a PUP, it is not the only one. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has thoroughly analyzed the extension in our internal lab, and the findings are presented further in this report. Just a quick disclaimer: The chances are that you have acquired the PUP bundled with other threats that might require removal, which is why, before you continue reading, we suggest performing a full system scan. Also note that the comments section below is open, and you can add any question you like to find an answer to. And if you are ready to delete Search4Musix, scroll down to find a removal guide.

Gandcrab V4

Gandcrab V4 is just another name for the GandCrab4 Ransomware. It is very common for computer infections to have multiple names because different researchers may assign these programs different names. On the other hand, it doesn’t mean that each “version” of the program is different. It’s just the same infection, and we can apply the same removal methods to all these “names.” So whatever we did to get rid of GandCrab4 Ransomware can also be applied to remove Gandcrab V4, too. You can also leave us a comment if you need assistance with malware removal. Our team is always ready to assist you. Read more »
