ChaCha Ransomware

ChaCha Ransomware

ChaCha Ransomware plays an audio recording saying your files were encrypted and then shows a black screen with a message from the malware’s creators. As usual for such threats, its ransom note claims the hackers are the only ones who can help a victim restore his data and that users should contact them as soon as possible. It might even say the cybercriminals will give you a fair price or guarantee that you will get the needed decryption tools, but, the truth is, there are no guarantees when dealing with hackers. If you realize that and do not wish to take any chances, we advise removing ChaCha Ransomware. As we explain in the text, you might need to rewrite Windows to restore your system and get rid of the threat.

Krypton Stealer

It’s one thing to deal with a ransomware infection, and then it’s another thing to deal with Trojan.

Hence, if you want to remove Krypton Stealer from your computer, you have probably performed a full system scan already, and you know that you must terminate this infection. You probably also know that there might be more dangerous infections on-board, too. Read more »

TitanCryptor Ransomware

TitanCryptor Ransomware

TitanCryptor Ransomware is the kind of malware that can destroy your personal files.

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 »
