Dharma-Ninja Ransomware

Dharma-Ninja Ransomware

Did Dharma-Ninja Ransomware encrypt files on your operating system? You can determine that by looking at the names of your files and by trying to open them. The “.id-{ID}.[ninja777@cock.li].ninja” extension should be added to the names, and when you try to open the files, you should be unable to do it. The files become unreadable after encryption because the threat changes the data within. Unfortunately, you cannot click a button or use an existing program to change things back to normal. Once files are encrypted, they are likely to be encrypted for good. Of course, the attackers want you to believe that you can restore files using their decryption software. Can you? That is unlikely to be the case, and Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers are ready to explain why. We also can explain how to delete Dharma-Ninja Ransomware. Keep reading to learn more, and do not forget to post questions in the comments section below if you want to. Read more »

AnteFrigus Ransomware

AnteFrigus Ransomware

When you do not take care of your operating system, you open a door for malware, and one of the infections that could use it is the AnteFrigus Ransomware. This infection might use remote access vulnerabilities, spam emails with malicious attachments, and clandestine bundled downloaders to enter the operating system, and if there is no reliable security software to stop the execution of this threat, your personal files are put at risk instantly. This malware encrypts files and, as the name suggests, it demands a ransom payment afterward. This payment, allegedly, would be exchanged for a decryptor, but can you trust cybercriminals? Of course, you cannot trust them, and that is why our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team does NOT recommend making any payments. In fact, we do not recommend interacting with cybercriminals and their malware at all. Instead, you should focus on deleting AnteFrigus Ransomware. Read more »

Arsium Ransomware

You might think that we are about to talk about another ransomware infection because it’s Arsium Ransomware after all, but guess what – it’s not your average ransomware app. Now, why is that? It’s because the program is actually a builder set devised to help you CREATE ransomware. So, it’s like a toolkit for people who want to make their own malicious infections. Perhaps it’s a good thing that none of the samples we had worked, but just in case you find this builder on your system, you should probably remove Arsium Ransomware for good. If it was you who downloaded the builder, we urge you to reconsider your intentions. Read more »

RSA Ransomware

RSA Ransomware

RSA Ransomware was created by hackers who want to extort money from their victims. Therefore, the malicious application was programmed to encrypt personal data and display a ransom note asking to pay for their decryption. While hackers may claim they will provide needed decryption tools right after they get their money, we would not rush to trust them. There is always a risk they may not bother delivering the promised tools or that they might ask for more money. Thus, the best way to restore your files would be using backup copies. Of course, not every user backups his files, in which case, encrypted data could be lost if a victim does not want to put up with hackers’ demands. Whatever is your decision, we recommend removing RSA Ransomware because it might be risky to leave it undeleted. To find out more about it as well as learn how to erase it, we invite you to continue reading. Read more »

DOGCALL

DOGCALL is one of those things that are hard to notice if you do not perform regular system security scans. It is a Trojan that is used to access a target system. The term for these infections is RAT – Remote Access Tool. It means that with this malicious threat on-board, someone gains access to your system, and then the infection can be used to perform a number of illegal activities. To remove DOGCALL, you actually need to be aware of the fact it is there. Thus, regular system scans with security tools are very important if you intend to protect your system from harm.

Mespinoza Ransomware

Mespinoza Ransomware

Mespinoza Ransomware is very dangerous, and if you make the mistake of letting this malware into your operating system, you are likely to find most of your personal files encrypted. Needless to say, you are unlikely to let this malware in knowingly, but cybercriminals know the tricks and the backdoors that can be used to help the distribution of malware. For example, cybercriminals know that many people continue to be careless with spam emails. They open them, they read them, and if the message is convincing enough, they might be tricked into opening the attached file. As you might have gathered already, this file represents malware. Once the file is opened, the path for malware to slither in is cleared, and if security software is not set up to look out for you and delete infections before they are executed, the attack is underway. Sadly, once personal files are encrypted, they cannot be restored. You cannot salvage them even by removing Mespinoza Ransomware. Read more »

VIRUS Ransomware

VIRUS Ransomware

VIRUS Ransomware is a threat that encrypts files and displays a ransom note. Meaning, the malicious application was created for money extortion. If you do not want to fund cybercriminals, you could use your backup copies (e.g., files on cloud storage or removable media devices) to get your data back. The malicious application's ransom note may suggest purchasing decryption tools by contacting the threat’s creators and paying a ransom. Of course, doing so would be risky as hackers are not people that you can trust. This is why we always advise not to pay ransom for victims who fear being tricked. However, before deciding anything, we recommend learning more about this malicious application by reading our full article. Also, if you need guidance while erasing it, you should have a look at our deletion instructions available below this article too. Read more »
