GiffySocial Toolbar

GiffySocial Toolbar

Even if you want to see random GIFs every time you open the new tab page, GiffySocial Toolbar is not an extension you want to install.

Speedy PC Pro 2018

Speedy PC Pro 2018

Free PC optimization tools that promise to clean the system and considerably improve its performance exist on the market, but Speedy PC Pro 2018 is not one of them, as research has clearly shown. If you install it, you could only use it as a diagnostic scanner. It will list all found issues/errors, but it will not fix a single one of them unless you purchase a license and upgrade the program. The license is not very expensive, so some users decide to invest in this program. This is not what we recommend that you do if you have already installed Speedy PC Pro 2018 on your computer because we cannot guarantee that this application could solve all your PC problems and improve its performance. It does not show any fake scan results like some other programs pretending to be reliable PC optimization tools, but it is very likely that it shows only insignificant issues. We leave the final decision in your hands, but it would be better that you purchase a more trustworthy application’s license. Have you already installed Speedy PC Pro 2018 on your computer? If so, we highly recommend that you erase it if you are not going to upgrade it because it might start showing various pop-ups on your screen to push you into purchasing the license. Even though they do not seem to be irritating at first, we are sure you will sooner or later find them extremely annoying. Read more »

FreeHosting APT PowerSploit Poison Ivy

FreeHosting APT PowerSploit Poison Ivy is the name of the cyber attack that was organized by cyber criminals back in 2017. This was definitely not an ordinary cyber attack. It was planned from beginning to end and affected only a specific group of users. To be more specific, they received emails with malicious download links. It is now known that emails that were involved in the malicious attack were these: wisers.data@gmail.com and health.pro.demo30@gmail.com. If it happens that you find an unopened email sent to you from any of these email addresses, you should ignore it completely because even though it is old, it might still cause you security problems once opened. It is hard to say whether cyber criminals might perform the same attack again in the near future, but they might surely perform similar cyber attacks based on the FreeHosting APT PowerSploit Poison Ivy modus operandi, so you should stay cautious. First, never open any suspicious email attachments and do not click on links suspicious emails contain. Second, do not download any programs from random websites you find on the web. Third, there must be a security application installed on your computer. Speaking about an automated antimalware tool, it will protect you against all kinds of computer threats as long as you keep it active on your system. Read more »

Katyusha Ransomware

Katyusha Ransomware

How many personal photos and important document files are stored on your Windows operating system? Unfortunately, Katyusha Ransomware can encrypt all of them. This dangerous infection is like a bulldozer, and it can destroy everything in its way. Of course, it is not programmed to encrypt system files because that would make it impossible for cyber attackers to make their own demands. When it comes to the demands, the attackers behind the ransomware want only one thing, and that is your money. The majority of file-encryptors are created for this one purpose alone. There have been threats that Anti-Spyware-101.com recognized as “educational” – such as Ctf Ransomware or GPCode Ransomware – but most of them were created to fill the pockets of criminals. If you do not want cyber attackers to reach their goal, do not respond to their demands and quickly delete Katyusha Ransomware instead. If the removal of this threat intimidates you, the information in this guide will ease your mind. Read more »
