Templates Discovery Tab

Templates Discovery Tab

Templates for cards, invitations, documents, forms, or certificates can be useful, which is why Templates Discovery Tab might seem like an attractive tool. This extension promises to give access to various templates, but our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team does not identify it as a useful tool. Instead, we identify it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). This is the conclusion that has been made after thoroughly inspecting the extension in an internal lab and finding out that it has many other functions, not just offering templates. In fact, it does not even produce templates of its own. Instead, it presents links to third-party websites, where templates can be found. So, in our eyes, the extension is neither useful nor trustworthy, and removing it seems like the only logical move. Are you ready to delete Templates Discovery Tab, or do you need more information about this PUP? In either way, you should keep reading. Read more »

Kuus Ransomware

If your computer cannot open your files and they have .kuus extension, your system might have been infected by a threat called Kuus Ransomware.

Therefore, we advise you to think carefully if you really want to deal with cybercriminals.

HAT Ransomware

HAT Ransomware

If your Windows operating system is not currently secured against malware, fix this problem ASAP because HAT Ransomware could invade through various different security cracks. Such cracks can be opened by spam emails, unpatched vulnerabilities, malvertising scams, unreliable downloaders, and so on. It does not take much for cybercriminals to find a victim, and if they are successful, all files found on the attacked system are encrypted. What does that entail? When files are encrypted, reading them normally is impossible. According to the researchers at Anti-Spyware-101.com, a tool called ‘Rakhni Decryptor’ exists (created by ransomware researchers), but we cannot know for sure that you will be able to decrypt all of your files using it. Hopefully, that is the case, but even if you cannot recover files, you should not pay attention to the cybercriminals’ demands. Instead, you should focus on deleting HAT Ransomware. Read more »

Alpha865qqz Ransomware

Alpha865qqz Ransomware

You must protect your Windows operating system against Alpha865qqz Ransomware at all cost because if it manages to invade, it can encrypt everything. No, it does not encrypt system files, but that is only because the infection needs your operating system to function properly so that appropriate messages could be introduced to you. Other than that, all of your personal files can be corrupted, and that is done using an encryption key. This key is unique and strong, and so you cannot decipher the encrypted files yourself. Can third-party tools help? Free decryptor exist, but they cannot decipher secret keys. In some cases, cybersecurity experts are able to build free decryptors for the victims of ransomware, but that happens rarely, and that hasn’t happened for the Alpha865qqz infection yet. Unfortunately, files cannot be recovered by deleting Alpha865qqz Ransomware either. In fact, this malware should remove itself once it is done with the encryption of your personal files. Read more »

AllConvertersSearch

AllConvertersSearch

If you are looking for tools that could help you convert files, know that AllConvertersSearch is not one of them. It is just a search tool, and even though it might seem that it would help find converters specifically, it does not offer anything more than a regular search provider would. In fact, it uses a quote-unquote regular search provider. It is Yahoo Search, and if you decide to use the suspicious extension, it will redirect you search.yahoo.com. You might think that this is not so bad, considering that Yahoo Search is a trusted search engine. Well, because the PUP (potentially unwanted program) modifies the results that are shown via it, we cannot recommend trusting it. If you delete AllConvertersSearch and then set Yahoo Search as your default search provider, we are sure that you will be safe, but if you use it via the PUP, you might not be. So, do you want to remove the PUP quickly, or are you still looking for more information about it? We can help you in both cases. Read more »

EG83 Ransomware

EG83 Ransomware

If you cannot recognize your files because their names were replaced with random titles and they have the .EG83 extension, you most likely encountered a malicious application called EG83 Ransomware. Such threats are usually used for money extortion, which is why the malware creates ransom notes in every directory that contains encrypted files and replaces a victim’s desktop picture with an image that also shows a ransom note. None of the messages say how much users would have to pay to get the tools needed for their files’ decryption. Whatever the price might be, we advise not to pay it if you do not want to risk getting scammed. To learn more about EG83 Ransomware like how it works, where it could come from, and how to erase it, we invite you to read the rest of this article. Read more »

Access Online Forms

Access Online Forms

You do not need extensions to access online forms, but the creator of Access Online Forms has decided to convince Google Chrome users into thinking otherwise. At the time of research, this extension offered easy-access links to findmyforms.com and eforms.com for its users, and while you might find them to be useful, you certainly do not need an extension to access them. Does it offer other beneficial services? That is unlikely to be the case. In fact, this PUP (potentially unwanted program) collects data about users, redirects to a third-party search engine, and injects ads into search results to promote third-party content. This is, most likely, what the extension was creator for. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team does not think that it is useful, and that is why we recommend removing it. Do you know how to delete Access Online Forms from your browser? Continue reading, and you will find out. Read more »
