Delphimorix Red Ransomware

Delphimorix Red Ransomware

Delphimorix Red Ransomware is a tremendously vicious infection, and it looks like it was created for the sole purpose of destroying Windows users’ files. Unlike most threats of this kind, it appears that it was not created to make any money for the attackers. Of course, a ransom price is set, but it is ridiculous. At the time of research, it was set at 999,999.5 Bitcoin, which is around 8,000,000,000 US Dollars. Needless to say, this is not the kind of money that anyone would be willing to give. Even multibillion dollar companies and governments could not cough up that much. It seems like the attackers just entered a random number without even expecting the ransom to be paid. Truth be told, even if the ransom was $10, we would not recommend paying it. Nonetheless, the risk would be much smaller. Even though there might be no point in discussing the demands of cyber criminals, we certainly need to discuss the removal of Delphimorix Red Ransomware. If you continue reading, you will learn how to delete this threat. Read more »

Game Jungle

Game Jungle

Do you like playing games online? If you do, Game Jungle is an extension that might catch your eye. This extension is offered for Google Chrome users, and, according to the information that is presented on the Chrome web store – the application can be found at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/game-jungle/ecihmmgjchcokdfbpinfokhambbbodpo – it can help find free versions of various games. Needless to say, an offer like that can seem very attractive. Well, our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team identifies it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP), and that certainly is not because of the promises this extension makes. Our researchers claim that the extension is used as decoy to expose users to unreliable search results. Without a doubt, that is a good reason to remove Game Jungle from Google Chrome immediately. If you need our help deleting this malicious threat, you want to continue reading. We discuss different elimination options, and we also provide you with the opportunity to communicate with our research team via the comments section. Read more »

Search.htransitlocator.co

Search.htransitlocator.co

You should find Search.htransitlocator.co set as the New Tab page on your browser if you downloaded an add-on named “Transit Locator.” Both of these tools were created by Eightpoint Technologies Ltd. and PolarityTechnologies Ltd., and they always come bundled together. The hijacker is not spread on its own, and the extension represents the hijacker. One might say that the extension and the hijacker are the exact same thing, except that when it comes to downloading and deleting this software, Transit Locator is the thing that is downloaded and that must be eliminated. At first sight, this software does not look malicious or suspicious, but our research team at Anti-Spyware-101.com recommends deleting Search.htransitlocator.co and Transit Locator immediately. If you are worried that you will not be able to get rid of this strange hijacker, continue reading this report to gather knowledge, and if you continue to have questions afterward, do not forget to add them to the comments section.

parambingobam@cock.li Ransomware

parambingobam@cock.li Ransomware

Anti-Spyware-101.com malware analysts warn about parambingobam@cock.li Ransomware. It was created using the same malware code that has been used by all threats from the Crysis/Dharma family, including admin@decryption.biz Ransomware and karlosdecrypt@outlook.com Ransomware.

The structure of the infection, the distribution, the encryption process, and the demands made afterward are all the same. Even the names of the files that this malware creates are the same. That being said, it is most likely that different malicious parties are responsible for these threats, unless the same attacker has created hundreds of email addresses. In any case, whether there is one malicious attacker or a bunch of them standing behind this malware, you need to remove it as quickly as possible.

Sad Computer Ransomware

Sad Computer Ransomware

Surely, you do not want to face Sad Computer Ransomware, but you might if you are not careful. This infection could exploit system vulnerabilities exposed due to skipped updates to enter the system. It also could trick you into executing the infection via spam emails or malicious installers. Regardless of how the infection spreads, if it gets in, it encrypts files immediately. Your childhood photos, work documents, home videos, and other kinds of files could be affected by this threat without you even knowing it. After they are encrypted, the “.sad” extension is added to their names, and they can no longer be opened and read normally. That is because the data of the files is jumbled by an encryptor. To read the files, a decryptor is required. So, how can you get it? At the time of research, that was simply not possible. What about the ransom? Even if you believe that that is your only option, do not give in. Instead of wasting your money, learn how to delete Sad Computer Ransomware. Read more »

Admin@decryption.biz Ransomware

Admin@decryption.biz Ransomware

It shouldn’t be hard for you to figure out that Admin@decryption.biz Ransomware has invaded your operating system because when this malware attacks, it attaches the “.id-[ID].[Admin@decryption.biz].bkpx” extension to the corrupted files. Also, it automatically launches a window titled “Admin@decryption.biz” that represents the threat. Our research team at Anti-Spyware-101.com was already familiar with this infection before any tests were conducted in our internal lab because it comes from the Crysis/Dharma Ransomware family. The infections from this family launch identical-looking ransom notes, and they work in the same ways too. Furthermore, it appears that this particular threat was created by someone who created at least one other file-encryptor. We discuss this further in the report. Without a doubt, our most important task here is to show you how to remove Admin@decryption.biz Ransomware. However, before you delete the threat, we want to share some knowledge with you because that is what will help you avoid this kind of malware in the future. Read more »
