ChineseRarypt Ransomware

ChineseRarypt Ransomware

ChineseRarypt Ransomware is a malicious application that places files in an archive and encrypts it. Later on, the malware ought to drop a ransom note claiming only the threat’s creators can restore affected files and that victims who encounter it would have to pay for it. As always, we advise considering this demand carefully as you cannot know if the hackers will help you restore your files even if they promise to. In short, your money might be lost in vain, and if you do not wish to risk it, we encourage you to ignore the malware’s ransom note and restore data from backup copies that you could keep on cloud storage or elsewhere. Of course, it might be unsafe to do anything with an infected computer while the malicious application is still on it. To erase it, you should follow the instructions provided below or get a legitimate antimalware tool that would remove ChineseRarypt Ransomware for you. Read more »

Php Ransomware

Php Ransomware could cause a lot of trouble to those who receive it as the malicious application was programmed to encipher user data with a secure encryption algorithm. Because of this, files locked by the malware cannot be launched. Of course, it is likely the hackers behind this threat may offer decryption tools, but we have no doubt they would ask to pay a ransom in return. The problem with such deals is that there are no reassurances the cybercriminals will hold on to their end of the agreement. It means it is possible you could end up wasting your money for nothing, and if it is not something you want to risk experiencing, we advise removing Php Ransomware from your system. To get rid of it manually, users could follow the deletion steps available below. On the other hand, if the process looks complicated, it might be easier to employ a legitimate antimalware tool.

Trojan.Pondfull

Trojan.Pondfull is a generic Trojan infection that can perform quite a few functions on your computer. The main problem with Trojan infections is that users often are not aware of the fact they are infected. Trojans remain hidden in the background, and work silently. Unless they take a lot of system resources, it might take months for you to notice anything. Thus, to remove Trojan.Pondfull as soon as possible, you have to run regular system scans, so you could locate and delete the infection at once. It is also highly probable that there will be more infections on-board, so do yourself a favor and clean your system through and through. Read more »

PCASTLE

Some malware threats are very visible, and some can remain hidden for a very long time. PCASTLE is a security threat that will not manifest immediately. It can also remain hidden because it doesn’t bring a payload that can significantly slow down your system. Therefore, the best way to detect PCASTLE is to scan your system regularly with a legitimate security tool. If the security tool of your choice detects this infection on your computer, you need to remove PCASTLE immediately. There is also a good chance that you will have to remove several other infections too, so be prepared. Read more »

Godzilla Loader

Godzilla Loader is a tool that can be used in ransomware distribution. The presence of such tools on the market shows that we have to be really considerate about our system and network safety. Also, Trojan infections are hard to discern when they don’t have a graphic user’s interface, which leaves us with regular system scans as the ultimate necessity. If you do not detect and remove Godzilla Loader at once, your network might get infected with a dangerous ransomware program that could virtually destroy your file library. To prevent that, you have to take good care of your cybersecurity. Read more »

Bisquilla Ransomware

Bisquilla Ransomware

There is a new player in town, and it is called Bisquilla Ransomware. At this point, the infection is still in development stages, but, according to our Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers, we could see new versions emerging in the near future. This first version does not create any demands, and it does not encrypt files like most ransomware infections, but it has the function to encrypt them and add the “.wrk” extension to their original names. Obviously, if you have found this extension attached to your personal files, you have to consider the possibility that you need to eliminate a malicious threat from your operating system. However, we hope that you are reading this report before the attacks of this malware begin, so that you could secure your operating system and personal files against it. Obviously, if new versions emerge, we will be updating our readers as soon as possible so that they could delete Bisquilla Ransomware, but, for now, we only have limited information, and the focus of this report is virtual security.

INPIVX Ransomware

INPIVX Ransomware

Stop whatever you are doing and figure out how to secure your Windows operating system. A new file-encrypting threat named INPIVX Ransomware was found, and, according to Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, its source code is currently being sold to anyone who is interested. That means that we could soon encounter a bunch of different variants of this malware. While these variants should function in the same way – which we discuss further in the report – the identifying features should be unique. That is because when building the threat using the available code, the attacker can choose any name. If clones of the dangerous infection emerge in the future, we will report them as soon as possible. Right now, however, it is most important to reinforce Windows protection and to secure all personal files because it is unlikely that it will be possible to restore them after the attack. If you already need to delete INPIVX Ransomware, it might be time for you to install an automated anti-malware program. Read more »
