Moba Ransomware

Windows operating systems need to be protected against all kinds of malware, especially against Moba Ransomware and other file-encrypting threats that are created to lock all personal files and force their owners to make huge payouts for alleged decryptors. The issue is that even if ransoms are paid, decryptors are not offered, and victims find themselves empty-handed. Needless to say, if you are currently facing a file-encrypting threat, we hope that you have not contacted the attackers or paid the ransom yet. We do not recommend wasting time or money, and we hope that you do not need to either. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers indicate that Moba is a variant of the STOP Ransomware infection, for which a free decryptor has been built. STOP Decryptor does not guarantee full decryption, but it is the only decryptor that you can trust. Before you install the tool, you have to remove Moba Ransomware, and if you have no idea how to delete this threat from Windows, keep reading. Read more »

NYPD Ransomware

We must clarify right away that NYPD Ransomware has nothing to do with the New York Police Department. The name is random, and it is likely that its creator did not think much before attaching it to the infection. The truth is that there are too many threats just like this one, and so coming up with new and clever names is becoming harder and harder. We are talking about STOP Ransomware threats, and a few other variants that we can mention include Pezi Ransomware, Nlah Ransomware, and Usam Ransomware. There are hundreds more. The attacker(s) behind this malware did not need to put in any effort because every variant is a clone of the original infection. Perhaps that is why so many variants have been found. Needless to say, victims need to delete all of them, but before they do that, they are likely to pay attention to the ransom demands. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team can assure you that focusing on the removal of NYPD Ransomware instead of the ransom is a better use of your time. Read more »

Pezi Ransomware

Pezi Ransomware encrypts files and marks them with an extension called .pezi. For example, a document called receipt.pdf would become receipt.pdf.pezi after being encrypted. Why do hackers create file-encrypting threats? So that their victims would be unable to open their files and would feel like they have no choice but to pay ransom to purchase decryption tools from the malware’s creators. However, it is important to stress that paying the ransom does not guarantee that you will receive the needed decryption tools. The hackers may promise anything to convince you to pay, but, in the end, you cannot be sure that they will hold on to their end of the bargain. Therefore, we advise taking your time while thinking about what to do if you encounter this threat. To learn how to delete Pezi Ransomware and more about its working manner, we invite you to read the rest of this article. Read more »
