Adame Ransomware

When Adame Ransomware attacks the operating system, it starts encrypting files right away, and then once that is done, the “.id[unique code].[supportcrypt2019@cock.li].Adame” extension should be visible. This extension is added to the encrypted files’ names, and this serves no other purpose than to identify the corrupted files. This makes it easier to see which files were corrupted, and while that does not help with decryption, it certainly can help assess the situation overall. If you have backups stored externally or online, you can check them to see if the corrupted files have backup replacements. We hope that that is the case because, unfortunately, decrypting the files corrupted by this malware appears to be impossible. If you come across a tool that promises to decrypt files, make sure you are cautious because you do not want to let in new infections, do you? Handling and deleting Adame Ransomware might be difficult enough as it is. So, do you know how to remove this infection? Read more »

REvil Ransomware

REvil Ransomware is a computer infection that will try to push you into spending your money on a decryption key. This decryption key is supposedly necessary to restore your encrypted files. Although that is the common path of action when it comes to ransomware infections, computer security experts always maintain that paying for the decryption key is not the best choice. Users should remove REvil Ransomware instead without giving these criminals what they want. Scroll down to the bottom of this entry for the manual removal instructions. If necessary, get yourself a legitimate security tool to perform a full system scan. Read more »

Computer security experts recommend that users run regular system scans to detect such infections as soon as possible. If you want to remove Extenbro Dns from your system, you should acquire a powerful security application that will help you terminate the Trojan for good.

COPAN Ransomware

COPAN Ransomware might look like an entirely new computer infection, but the truth is that it is merely a newer version of the notorious Dharma Ransomware program. It is also a rather slippery infection because it doesn’t leave much for us to deal with: It is known to delete itself once the encryption is complete. Nevertheless, there are still things you can to do remove COPAN Ransomware and everything related to it from your system. Also, it would be a good idea to learn more about ransomware and its distribution methods because you can never know when a similar intruder tumbles down into your PC again. Read more »

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.
