Snatch Ransomware

Snatch Ransomware

Snatch Ransomware does not rename files it enciphers, but it may mark them with .snatch, .FileSlack, or .jupstb extensions. Later on, it ought to drop a ransom note that should be more or less the same no matter which version of the malware you receive. The words in the note claim that the user should not attempt to restore files himself if he does not wish to ruin them completely. Instead, the malware’s developers advise contacting them via email. Of course, we recommend against it, as they will most likely ask you to pay a ransom, and doing so could be hazardous. If you have no intention to risk your savings, we recommend ignoring the ransom note and erasing Snatch Ransomware. The instructions offered below this text will tell you how to remove the malicious application manually. If you are interested, you can also learn more about the threat by reading our full report.

Eq Ransomware

Eq Ransomware

Eq Ransomware is a dangerous infection that might invade your Windows operating system if you do not secure it appropriately. It is crucial that you install legitimate security/anti-malware software to keep the operating system guarded, and it is also important that you act cautiously. Most file-encrypting infections invade operating systems using the help of victims themselves, who, of course, have no idea what is going on. In a popular scenario, the launcher of the threat is camouflaged as a harmless file that is sent via email. If the victim clicks the file to open or download it, the malicious ransomware is executed immediately, without any notice. The threat needs to stay silent so that it could encrypt files and perform other malicious actions. Without a doubt, if you spot the infection right away, you must delete it; otherwise, your files will be destroyed. Continue reading if you want to understand what happens with your files, how to protect yourself in the future, and, of course, how to remove Eq Ransomware. Read more »

EnyBeny Ransomware

EnyBeny Ransomware

EnyBeny Ransomware is a version of EnybenyCrypt Ransomware. Its older versions could encrypt data or even delete files later on, but it looks like this version is not yet fully developed. According to our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com, it only changes user’s Desktop image and drops numerous copies of its ransom note all over the computer. Given it does not encrypt data yet, and users would have no reason to agree with any of the hackers’ demands, we doubt the malicious program could be distributed widely. Still, we do not say it is entirely impossible. In case you do encounter this version of EnyBeny Ransomware, we advise removing it with no hesitation. The instructions available below should help you get rid of it manually, and if you wish to know more details about the threat, we invite you to keep reading our article. Read more »

SpeedTest3

SpeedTest3

Have you downloaded SpeedTest3 to test your Internet speeds? If you have done that, you might come to the conclusion that you have made a mistake. Although the extension looks pretty much harmless, and you can download it onto Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers for free, there’s more than meets the eye. The extension is, first and foremost, an advertising tool, and if you let it in, you will be flooded with all kinds of ads. Furthermore, the parties serving them could know quite a lot about you to ensure that the content you are exposed to is attractive, and that is due to the information that the extension collects and shares. To most users, this is enough to decide upon the removal of SpeedTest3. If you wish to delete this extension as well, you can find a guide below. Before that, we advise reading the report to understand this adware (advertising-supported software) better. Read more »

Scarab-Apple Ransomware

Scarab-Apple Ransomware

No doubt Scarab-Apple Ransomware belongs to the Scarab Ransomware family. Same as other threats from it, the malware encrypts user’s files and shows a note with instructions on how to receive a decryptor. This version has its own extension called .apple, which means data that get affected should be marked with it, for example, picture.jpg.apple. It is true the decryption tool the hackers may have should be able to unlock enciphered files, but there are no guarantees they will deliver it even if you meet all of their demands. In other words, paying the ransom could leave you not only with encrypted data but also with a lighter wallet. Therefore, we do not recommend contacting the malicious application’s developers if you do not want to take any risks. To clean the system and stop it from showing the threat’s ransom note after each restart, we advise deleting Scarab-Apple Ransomware with the instructions available below or your chosen antimalware tool.

bestMovies Now

bestMovies Now

We all watch movies and TV series, and we all want the best and most convenient experience. An add-on called bestMovies Now is supposed to provide just that. The extension promises to offer “immediate access to information about unlimited movies, TV series, trailers and movie reviews,” which might make you think that it allows watching movies and TV series for free. It does not. The best it can do is route to gomovix.com, which you can use to find movies or TV shows and a list of streaming services that you can use to watch them. Overall, the extension is kind of useless, and it is surprising that users fall for it at all. Nonetheless, a useless service is not all that the suspicious extension can provide you with. According to our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team, if you do not delete bestMovies Now, it will track your activity and inform third parties about it to help them showcase ads, which are likely to be displayed via the search engine. These are the main reasons to remove the extension ASAP. Read more »
