FlowerPippi

If you are informed about the existence of FlowerPippi, you need to make sure that you remove this threat as soon as possible. You also need to inspect your operating system for other threats because this backdoor malware is unlikely to exist on its own. In the summer of 2019, this malicious threat was found to spread via spam emails along with Gelup, another Trojan that, of course, requires elimination as well. These two infections are believed to belong to the TA505 group, which has been sending its malware in many different directions. Its activity has been recorded in Morroco, the Middle East, and also Australia, Japan, and the Philippines. If you live in these three countries, you are more likely to need to delete FlowerPippi from your operating system. So, how can you get rid of this malware and, more important, how can you ensure protection against it in the future? Read more »

VeePN

VeePN

In this report, we are discussing the VeePN Chrome extension that the users of this browser can acquire from the popular Chrome web store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/veepn-unlimited-free-fast/majdfhpaihoncoakbjgbdhglocklcgno. The extension is free, and so it is no surprise that over 11,300 Chrome users have downloaded it already. The program also has a shinning 4.5/5 star rating (from 49 users), but it has a mixed bag of reviews. Some of them make the extension sound amazing, while others might create doubts and make you question its versatility and usefulness. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, the extension works, and although it has a limited number of free VPN servers (at the time, we had six to choose from), it offers more for those willing to pay for the Premium service.

MarioLocker Ransomware

MarioLocker Ransomware

MarioLocker Ransomware is an infection that might have been abandoned by its creator already. That is what we have to think about because one of the most important files that belong to this malware can no longer be downloaded onto the infected systems. Perhaps this is just a temporary glitch, and perhaps the file will become downloadable again. If that happens, the Anti-Spyware-101.com research team will report back to you as soon as possible. For now, it looks like we are dealing with something that might be obsolete already. That being said, it is always possible that the threat could be spread even if parts of it are dysfunctional. In most cases, ransomware is spread using spam emails or bundled downloaders, and you could always open spam emails much later on, and bundled downloaders could float around with dysfunctional malware for a long time. Whatever the case, whether or not your files were encrypted, you need to remove MarioLocker Ransomware if it got in. Continue reading, and you will learn how to delete this threat. Read more »
