Chinz Ransomware

Chinz Ransomware

Chinz Ransomware is a malicious application that belongs to the Phobos Ransomware family. Like most ransomware applications, it encrypts victims’ files with a robust encryption algorithm. As a result, files become unusable and cannot be opened unless they get decrypted. What is even worse is that it might be impossible to obtain the needed decryption tools. Usually, only the malware’s creators can provide decryption tools unless cybersecurity specialists manage to create them. While cybersecurity specialists offer them free of charge, hackers demand users to pay a ransom. Specialists warn that the prices might be high, and there are no guarantees that you will get the promised tools. Therefore, we advise you not to rush into anything before you learn more about this threat. We can offer our deletion instructions available at the end of this article for users who want to know how they could erase Chinz Ransomware manually. Read more »

Efji Ransomware

Efji Ransomware

Do not assume that your Windows operating system is safe if you only put in minimum effort to protect it. Efji Ransomware needs one single crack within your security, one single vulnerability to strike, and if it is successful, the damages caused by it can be detrimental. According to our researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com, this infection infects personal files mainly. That means that documents, audio files, videos, projects, presentations, pictures, and other types of unique and personal files are likely to be lost. Though this malware does not remove files or move them outside your computer, it encrypts them, which renders them unreadable. Needless to say, unreadable files are as good as gone. Is there no hope?

Mmpa Ransomware

Mmpa Ransomware

Mmpa Ransomware is a harmful application that can encrypt your files to ensure that you could not open them. As you see, encrypted files can be opened only if they get decrypted first. The problem is that doing so might be impossible because it requires special decryption tools. Hackers might claim that they have such tools and that they will be delivered to you once you pay a ransom, but there are no guarantees that it will happen. In other words, you could get scammed and lose both your money and files. If you do not want to pay a ransom, we advise checking if you have backup copies that you could use to replace encrypted files. We also recommend deleting Mmpa Ransomware if you plan on using the infected device since leaving the threat on it could endanger your future data. To learn more about the threat and its removal, we invite you to read our full article. Read more »
