TorS@Tuta.Io Ransomware

TorS@Tuta.Io Ransomware

TorS@Tuta.Io Ransomware is a new threat from the GlobeImposter Ransomware family. It may encrypt various types of files to take them as hostages and then display a ransom note that asks to pay in Bitcoins to receive special decryption tools. The offer might sound tempting if you have no backup copies and no means to restore your files, but we advise thinking twice before making your final decision. Cybercriminals may seem friendly and tell you anything to convince you to pay a ransom, but, in the end, no one can know if they mean to hold on to their promises. Naturally, if you have no intention to fund cybercriminals or do not want to risk losing your money for nothing, we advise you to ignore the ransom note and erase TorS@Tuta.Io Ransomware. You can learn how to delete the threat as well as more details about its working manner if you read our full article. Read more »

Superpushoffer.club

Superpushoffer.club

Superpushoffer.club is an ad server that was designed to introduce people to promotional content. It is not clear what parties this server is associated with, and so it is not possible to know whose ads might be shown via it. This is an important thing to think about because if you cannot trust a service completely, you should not use it at all. Of course, the service provided by this ad server is not exactly built for regular people. It is built for advertisers, and so do not think that anyone cares about your virtual security. Could it be jeopardized if you interacted with the advertisements presented to you? That is a possibility. If you face one ad, and if you choose to ignore it, perhaps you are safe. However, if you have enabled notifications by the ad server, ignoring the suspicious ads might become impossible. Needless to say, we recommend deleting Superpushoffer.club notifications, and if you want to learn how to do it, keep reading. Read more »

Thewowfeed.com

Thewowfeed.com

You do not want to have to deal with advertisements presented via Thewowfeed.com because this ad server is unlikely to offer anything useful, transparent, or trustworthy. Instead, it is likely to promote the services and products of parties that cannot be trusted, and that is why we suggest exiting the page that presents such ads as soon as possible. Unfortunately, some people are tricked into enabling notifications that are delivered by the ad server. If that is set up, ads can flood randomly, even when you are visiting trustworthy websites. Of course, you might be able to delete the pop-up ads by closing them, but they would reappear. Ignoring them might be difficult as well, given their distracting nature. Without a doubt, interacting with these ads is the worst choice. The good news is that you can remove Thewowfeed.com ads without having to put in too much effort. If you run Firefox, Chrome, or Edge, we can show you how to get rid of the annoying ads with the guides below. If you need a guide for a different browser, let us know. Read more »
