Righ Ransomware is a tremendously clandestine infection that bets on people to be careless with spam emails and bundled downloaders.

Remk Ransomware

Remk Ransomware

Remk Ransomware leaves an extension called .remk on the files that it encrypts, which is where its title comes from. The malware encrypts files with a secure encryption algorithm. Meaning, files affected by it cannot be restored unless you have a unique decryption key and a decryptor. While the malware’s developers seem to have such tools, they are willing to share them only with victims who pay ransom. The worst part is that even if you pay the sum they ask and on time, you cannot still be certain that the hackers will hold on to their end of the deal. Therefore, dealing with the malicious application’s creators could make matters even worse if you end up losing your money as well.

My Email Checker Tab

My Email Checker Tab

My Email Checker Tab is a tool that was designed by Eightpoint Technologies Ltd. This is the first sign that identifies a potential threat. Unfortunately, this company keeps producing more and more extensions that seem to offer legitimate services, but in reality, are completely useless and, perhaps, even intrusive and unreliable. A few other programs that are linked to the same company include Email Access Here, Your Search Tool, Find A Flight Pro, Breaking News Plus, and Watch Movies Live. Needless to say, it makes no sense for the same company to create several apps for email access/management, and that is another sign that, perhaps, these apps are not meant to be that useful. Of course, whether or not they are useful for you only you can decide. In either case, we recommend removing My Email Checker Tab and all other apps that were created by the same company. If you need no explanation as to why you should delete these extensions, you can go straight to the last section. If you need more information, continue reading. Read more »
