Infected Ransomware

Infected Ransomware

Infected Ransomware, according to the researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com, is very similar to an older infection known as Aurora Ransomware. It is possible that this malware belongs to the same attackers; otherwise, different parties are using the same malware code. In both cases, it appears that a free decryptor exists, and can be used to recover the encrypted files. This is terrific news, considering that most file-encrypting ransomware use ciphers that are impossible to crack. Hopefully, you too can free your personal files using a free decryptor, or you can use backups to replace the corrupted copies of your files. In any case, you must delete Infected Ransomware from your Windows operating system. Once you take care of that, you also need to think about the security of your system because you do not want other file-encryptors to slither in again, do you? Please take note of any questions that you might come up with, and you do not hesitate to add them to the comments section. We are here to help you with removal, and we are sure that we can find a solution that works for you. Read more »

Darus Ransomware

Darus Ransomware

Darus Ransomware is the kind of threat that can make your life miserable. This infection encrypts files, and if you do not have backups stored outside the infected system, you are unlikely to recover them. That means that if this infection slithers in, it might successfully destroy your personal files, so to speak. To drop the infection onto your operating system without your notice, its creator is likely to set up misleading emails with fake attachments or exploit RDP vulnerabilities. If you do not detect and remove Darus Ransomware right away, it starts its malicious attack not long after. First, it disables the Task Manager to make it impossible for you to terminate malicious processes and then delete the infection. Also, the threat drops files that can encrypt files, mimic a fake Windows updates screen, and even disable the Windows Defender. Without a doubt, this infection is strong enough to make a lasting impact. If you want to learn about erasing the threat, the recovery of files, and the security of your system, please keep reading.

Zero-Fucks Ransomware

Zero-Fucks Ransomware

Zero-Fucks Ransomware is a relatively new infection that was recently analyzed by our malware research team at Anti-Spyware-101.com. In fact, it is so new that it does not even work properly yet. The bad news is that it is already capable of encrypting files, and it could even spread successfully. The only thing that is missing is a functional ransom payment system. At the moment, when the threat delivers the ransom note, there is not enough information regarding the payment, and the displayed buttons – which, we assume, are correlated to the payment – do not work. These issues could have been resolved by the time you are reading this, and our team will issue an update if anything new is discovered. For now, however, we are dealing with a file-encryptor that does not function the right way. Of course, if it has invaded your operating system, you need to delete it regardless of the situation. Should you pay the ransom before removing Zero-Fucks Ransomware if that is possible? Continue reading to find out. Read more »

Scarab-Skype Ransomware

Scarab-Skype Ransomware has nothing to do with Skype, and it is not after its users in particular. The only reason why the malicious application has the popular telecommunications program’s title in its name is that it uses a .skype extension to mark all files it encrypts. Such data becomes unusable and to extort money from users who have no backup copies, the malware should show a message saying it is possible to decrypt affected files for a particular price. Needless to say, there are no guarantees when dealing with cybercriminals and doing so is always risky. If you do not want to risk losing your money in vain for data that got encrypted, we advise closing ransom note and erasing Scarab-Skype Ransomware. The instructions available at the end of this article show how to remove this threat manually, although it can be deleted with the help of a legitimate antimalware tool too. To learn more about its removal and the malware’s working manner, we invite you to read our full article. Read more »
