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 »

GottaCry Ransomware

GottaCry Ransomware

GottaCry Ransomware is a malicious program designed for money extortion. However, users who encounter it may not have the reason to pay a ransom. Apparently, the malware’s pop-up window may lie about user’s files being encrypted and then deleted.

In such a case, we advise deleting GottaCry Ransomware from the system. Even though it does not look like it can restart with the operating system, it would still be unwise to keep a threat on your computer.

TitanCryptor Ransomware

TitanCryptor Ransomware

TitanCryptor Ransomware is the kind of malware that can destroy your personal files. Even though it only encrypts them – which, in theory, means that you should be able to decrypt them – recovering them has not been possible yet. Even though free decryptors do not exist, and restoring files manually is not possible, victims might be tricked into paying money for the decryptor allegedly created by the attackers. Can you trust them? Anti-Spyware-101.com research team does not recommend it. Even though cyber criminals might respond to you once you contact them first, it is unlikely that you would hear from them again after paying the ransom. Keep your money to yourself and, instead, figure out how to delete TitanCryptor Ransomware from your operating system. If you need help, you will find useful removal information in this article. If you continue reading, you will also learn how this malware spreads and, in turn, how to protect your Windows operating system against it in the future. Read more »

help@decrypt-files.info Ransomware

help@decrypt-files.info Ransomware

Delphi Ransomware

Delphi Ransomware

Do you know what happens to the files corrupted by Delphi Ransomware? They are encrypted, which means that they can be read only using a special decoder. Although you might be happy to learn that your files are not lost completely, we have bad news: Cyber criminals are the only ones who can give you the tool to restore personal files. So, what is the problem? The problem is that these cyber criminals are unlikely to help you out. They might promise you to decrypt files as soon as you contact them and then pay the ransom, but if you think that the words of attackers can be trusted, you are wrong. While we cannot guarantee that you would not get anything in return for the ransom – after all, cyber criminals are people, and so they are unpredictable – it would be surprising to learn about files being decrypted successfully. If you cannot do anything about your files, you still can delete Delphi Ransomware, and we recommend initiating the removal of this malware ASAP. Read more »
