VidSearch

VidSearch

VidSearch is a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. Do you know what that means? In simple words, that means that the extension is useless and unreliable. If you have installed this extension already, you might have realized already that it does not search for videos specifically. In fact, it does not search for anything at all. It simply redirects search queries to search.yahoo.com. However, instead of just showing the normal search results, the PUP also modifies them. If you think that the modification is preformed to include more video-related results, you are mistaken. Instead, the suspicious extension ads sponsored links. So, the extension does not offer a useful search service, and then it also modifies the results you are shown via Yahoo Search to show the links of third parties. This is exactly why we advise deleting this potentially unwanted program. If you need help deleting VidSearch, continue reading. Read more »

Josephnull Ransomware

Josephnull Ransomware

Josephnull Ransomware is an infection that you are unlikely to notice upon entrance but are bound to face once the attackers want that. The infection works in several stages. First, it has to invade your operating system, and it might exploit existing RDP vulnerabilities, spam emails, or unreliable downloaders for that. If the system is not protected appropriately, the infection might be able to slither in without anyone’s notice. After that, it moves on to the second stage of the attack, during which it drops files, encrypts your personal files, and also deletes shadow volume copies. Finally, it reveals itself with the help of ransom note files, at which point it blatantly demands money. Hopefully, you have not been victimized by this malware yet, but if you have, you want to remove Josephnull Ransomware as soon as possible. That might not save your files, but your system will automatically become safer. We also share important tips that, hopefully, will help you keep your files and your operating system safe against ransomware in the future. Read more »
