gamenaps.com

gamenaps.com

Do not accept the notifications from gamenaps.com because that will allow the website to flood you with ads. Even if you do not enable notifications, ads are shown, but if you enable them, you might be giving it the permission to track you and expose you to more personalized content. Anti-malware tools recognize such behavior as adware assistance, which is why the enabled notifications are identified as adware helpers. Of course, not all notifications are unreliable, and some of the most popular websites offer this feature as well. That being said, this does not mean that you should enable notifications whenever you are offered this option. In fact, you should automatically disable them, unless you want to spend your time learning about what the enablement would entail. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team recommends deleting gamenaps.com notifications for several reasons, and if you want to learn more about the removal process, you should continue reading.

ROGER Ransomware

ROGER Ransomware

Once ROGER Ransomware finds a vulnerable Windows operating system and slithers in – which it usually does with the help of spam emails or unprotected RDP backdoors – it immediately encrypts files. When files are encrypted, the data is scrambled to ensure that no one can read it without the private key. Normally, this method acts as a file lock, but cybercriminals use it to lock out the owners of the files. This is done to force them to act a certain way, and if you continue reading this report, we will explain what the whole deal is. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have thoroughly inspected the malicious threat, and it is now clear that it belongs to the Crysis/Dharma Ransomware family, just like Devil Ransomware, Dever Ransomware, and hundreds of other threats whose removal we discussed in previous reports. In this report, of course, we show how to delete ROGER Ransomware. If you come up with any questions for our research team after you are done reading, add them to the comments area. Read more »

Horsedeal Ransomware

Horsedeal Ransomware

If you come across Horsedeal Ransomware, your Desktop image might be replaced with a picture of horses at sunset. The bad news is that the malicious application should also encrypt your files. As a result, you could lose your photos, documents, and other files forever if you have no backups on removable media devices or cloud storage. A special decryption tool and a unique decryption key are the only things that can decrypt the malware’s locked files. Unfortunately, the threat's creators, who may have them, will most likely want to be paid for providing such tools, and there are no guarantees that they will. In other words, if you try to purchase their decryption tools, you might get scammed. Therefore, we advise against paying the ransom if you decide you cannot risk losing your money. To learn how to erase Horsedeal Ransomware and other things about it, we invite you to read the rest of this article. Read more »

C0hen Locker Ransomware

C0hen Locker Ransomware

C0hen Locker Ransomware locks not your computer, but some of the files located on it. To be more precise, the malicious application encrypts files, and, as a result, they become unreadable as victims cannot open them. There is a way to restore such data, but it requires having a decryptor and a unique decryption key. Sadly, only the malware’s developers may have these means that could restore files, and they demand a ransom in exchange for them. The worst part is that even if you pay what they ask, you might still end up being scammed. Therefore, we do not recommend putting up with the hackers’ demands. Also, we advise deleting C0hen Locker Ransomware as quickly as you can because if it stays, it might relaunch after you restart your computer and encrypt files that you may yet create or obtain. To learn how to eliminate C0hen Locker Ransomware as well as other things about it, we invite you to read our full report. Read more »

BIOLOAD

Can you name an infection that impersonates a legitimate Microsoft .DLL file to carry out malicious actions? BIOLOAD is an infection that is capable of doing just that. This malware sneakily plants its own binary along with an authentic binary, and then it uses it to drop malware. More specifically, we are talking about Carabank, a dangerous banking Trojan that has, in the past, cleaned out money from online banking systems and even ATMs. Undoubtedly, the sneaky infection we are talking about in this report was, most likely, created to target banks and very specific systems. Could regular Windows users be affected? Perhaps, the attackers employing it could change tactics. Ultimately, when it comes to malware and cybercriminals, unpredictability is the only predictable thing, and so we would not reject the possibility that pretty much anyone could face the threat. Obviously, regardless of whether you are a banked or a stay-at-home mom, you need to remove BIOLOAD. Continue reading for removal tips. Read more »

Shitcoin Wallet

Shitcoin Wallet

If you want to be safe, Shitcoin Wallet is not the extension/program you should install. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that this PUP (potentially unwanted program) has the ability to inject malicious code and extract personal information from users visiting five cryptocurrency management platforms, which are binance.org, idex.market, myetherwallet.com, neotracker.io, and switcheo.exchange. If you visit any of these platforms while the PUP is active, your login credentials and crypto wallet information can be leaked without your permission, and, unfortunately, there is only one thing that can happen after that. Of course, the collected data could stay untouched, but it is possible that someone could use it to log into your wallets and tamper with the funds found within them. Do you want that? Of course, you do not, and that is why you should delete Shitcoin Wallet without further delay. If you want to waste no time, check out the last paragraph and the removal guide below. If you want to learn more, continue reading. Read more »
