FireBird RAT

FireBird RAT is a dangerous infection that can be used by pretty much anyone in a number of ways. This remote access trojan/tool was created by an unknown malware developer, who then decided to sell it on underground forums. This ensures that only interested parties – a.k.a. hackers – are able to obtain it. We do not know what price this tool is sold at, but that is done in anonymous ways, and that is why it is impossible to catch the seller and the buyer. Unfortunately, because virtually anyone can purchase the RAT, it can be used in many different ways, and its distribution can be unique as well. So, while some victims might execute the threat themselves as they open spam email attachments or files/links sent to them on social networking platforms, a different trojan could be employed to expose the RAT to others. Unfortunately, once inside the system, this malware stays hidden, and so victims are not supposed to know that they need to delete anything. Of course, the removal of FireBird RAT must be handled ASAP. Read more »

Nppp Ransomware

Nppp Ransomware

Nppp Ransomware is a malicious computer infection. This program will enter your system surreptitiously, and it will not let you do anything unless you pay the ransom fee. All ransomware programs are there to rip their victims off by pushing them into purchasing file decryption tools. Sometimes, those tools don’t even work. Thus, you should refrain from paying anything to these criminals, and you have to focus on removing Nppp Ransomware from your computer. You can find the manual removal instructions below, but it is also strongly recommended to invest in a licensed antispyware tool. Read more »

Fiaharam.net

Fiaharam.net

The information, offers, suggestions, and requests introduced to you via Fiaharam.net must be disregarded completely because this adware server is likely to be used by completely unreliable parties. If you think that you will be able to get paid when you share links on the Internet using the service, you are very far off the reality. In fact, if you are tricked into sharing links, you could, potentially, expose the communities you belong to, your followers, friends, and colleagues to scams, unreliable installers and perhaps even malware. Due to this, it is strongly recommended that you stay away from this adware server at all times. Have you been tricked into enabling the notifications by this server already? If you have, you now must be flooded with ads, and we can help you get rid of them. Hopefully, the only thing you need to do is remove Fiaharam.net notifications, but just in case you are dealing with something more ominous, please scan your operating system immediately. If the scanner detects threats, delete them ASAP. Read more »

ComputerDestroyer Ransomware

ComputerDestroyer Ransomware

ComputerDestroyer Ransomware is a malicious infection that is meant to convince you that your personal files were encrypted. Well, the good news is that they were not; unless there is a real file-encryptor inside your operating system, and this fake encryptor is taking attention away from it. Of course, that is unlikely to be the case. This malicious threat is a screen-locker of sorts, and if it manages to execute inside your Windows operating system, it should first log you off and then display a full-screen window that cannot be closed normally. You should, however, be able to reboot your system to Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking and remove ComputerDestroyer Ransomware successfully. Hopefully, you have not been tricked into contacting the attacker behind this malware, but even if you have, and if your files were “decrypted,” you must delete this infection as soon as possible. If you want to get on with the removal right away, scroll down to the last section. If you want to learn what our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has found, continue reading. Read more »

Jope Ransomware

Jope Ransomware

Jope Ransomware is a threat that appends the .jope extension to files that it enciphers, for example, leaves.jpg.jope. Our researchers say that the malicious application could be after pictures, various documents, and other types of data that could be valuable to the malware’s victims. As you see, once the threat is done with encrypting files, it shows a ransom note that asks to buy decryption tools. The malware’s creators may tell you that they can guarantee that you will get what you pay for. However, such people should not be trusted as there are known cases when users paid ransom, but never heard from cybercriminals again. Therefore¸ we advise thinking carefully if you want to risk being scammed. If you do not, we advise ignoring the ransom note and erasing Jope Ransomware. To learn more about it first, we invite you to read our full article. Read more »

Ahegao Ransomware

Ahegao Ransomware

Ahegao Ransomware is the kind of infection that can slip into your unguarded Windows operating system and immediately encrypt your personal files without your notice. Once files are fully encrypted, the infection reveals itself using “Encrypted v2.40” window. This window displays a message that the attackers behind the infection have prepared for you. We discuss this message at length further in the report. Since you are reading this article, it is most likely that you have faced this dangerous infection already. The good news is that removing Ahegao Ransomware should not be difficult. The bad news is that if it has encrypted your personal files, it is likely that you will not be able to recover them. If you are currently looking into free third-party decryptors, please make sure that they are harmless before installing them because cybercriminals are well aware of the demand for such tools, and they could camouflage other threats as legitimate decryptors. If you have downloaded anything suspicious, you should delete it immediately. Read more »

Edhappearer.info

Edhappearer.info is an adware server and, according to our researchers, a malicious website. You are unlikely to face it directly, but you could face advertisements delivered via it.

Needless to say, we do not want you facing this adware server or the ads that are delivered via it. Unfortunately, you might face it and you might even interact with it without realizing what is going on. If you continue reading, you will learn how to remove Edhappearer.info ads, and more importantly, you will learn how to keep yourself away from adware servers like that. Read more »
