Kronos Ransomware

Kronos Ransomware shows a note through which the malware’s creators try to convince their victims to pay a ransom. In exchange, the hackers promise to send a decryptor that could decipher the threat’s affected files. They even promise to prove that they have the needed decryptor by allowing their victims to send one file for free decryption. Even so, we would not recommend agreeing to pay a ransom if you do not want to risk losing your money in vain. It is possible because even if the cybercriminals have the promised recovery tools, it does not guarantee they will send them to you. In any case, it is up to you to decide what you should do. If you choose to eliminate Kronos Ransomware, we advise using the instructions available at the end of this article or a chosen antimalware tool. In case you want to get to know the threat better, we invite you to read our full article. Read more »

Koko Ransomware

When Koko Ransomware encrypts your photos, documents, and other personal and sensitive files, it changes the data of these files, and they can be read only when a special decryptor is used. That is the strength of this malicious threat because if the victim cannot restore the files or replace them with backups, they might be tricked into paying money for the decryptor proposed by the attackers. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has analyzed thousands of file-encrypting infections, and if they have one thing in common it is that victims do not get to decrypt their files; at least, in most cases. Some of the more recent threats analogous to the ransomware we are discussing in this report include CXK-NMSL Ransomware, Erenahen Ransomware, and Sherminator Ransomware. Hopefully, you have backups, and you do not need to worry about restoring the corrupted files, but, in any case, you need to delete Koko Ransomware, and that is what we are here to help you with.

Sherminator Ransomware

Sherminator Ransomware

Sherminator Ransomware appears to be a new variation of Mr.Dec Ransomware. Same as its early version, it encrypts files and shows a ransom note. The note does not ask for a ransom as it only claims a user needs to email the malware’s developers. However, based on our experience with such threats, we believe the demands for payment could be delivered later on via email. It is vital to understand that the hackers may promise anything to convince their victims to put up with their demands, but there are no guarantees they will hold on to their promises. Meaning, even if you do as told, you might not get your files decrypted. Thus, we advise thinking twice before putting up with any demands. If you decide it is not an option, we recommend removing Sherminator Ransomware with no hesitation. To learn more about it and its deletion, we invite you to read our full article and check the instructions available below. Read more »

Li Ransomware

Li Ransomware

Childhood photos, wedding videos, work or school documents, and other personal files can be corrupted by Li Ransomware if the conditions are right. These conditions include the Windows operating system being unprotected, users being careless/uneducated, and/or vulnerabilities being exposed. Although hundreds and thousands of file-encrypting infections are active as you read this, cybercriminals successfully find new victims. Of course, with more and more information being available, fewer and fewer Windows users are attacked. That being said, cyber attackers adapt quickly, and they learn new tricks to perform successful attacks, and so you must not let your guard down. If the malicious ransomware got into your operating system, you might believe that your personal files will be restored the moment you remove it, but that will not happen. Although you must delete Li Ransomware, it is likely that only the creator of the infection can restore your files, and, unfortunately, they are unlikely to do it. Read more »

Your Windows operating system cannot defend itself against Domn Ransomware unless you protect it appropriately and unless you stop acting carelessly online. According to our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, the attackers behind this dangerous infection could try to trick you into executing it yourself. For example, a fake email message could be sent to you with an alleged postage confirmation document. If you are tricked into opening this file, the infection can be executed without you even realizing it. This is just one example of how cybercriminals could attack you, and note that there are plenty of other methods they could use. Unfortunately, once inside the operating system, this infection can do a lot of damage because its primary task is to encrypt files. Once they are encrypted, you will not restore them even if you delete Domn Ransomware fast. Of course, the removal of this threat is important. Read more »
