Kodc Ransomware

Kodc Ransomware

Kodc Ransomware is a threat to your personal files, such as documents and photos, and if you want to keep them safe, you need to keep the threat away. Unfortunately, more and more file-encrypting threats emerge every single day, and it is no longer enough to implement legitimate security software. People often skip or postpone updates, and that leaves their systems exposed to new invaders. This is why all Windows users need to be proactive about how they protect their files as well. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers recommend setting up a reliable cloud storage system or using external hard drives to protect copies of all personal files. As long as the backups are separated from the original files, they should be safe. What about internal backups? We do not recommend using those because cybercriminals have learned ways to delete them. Hopefully, copies of your personal files are safe, and you can use them to replace the corrupted files after removing Kodc Ransomware. Read more »

HackdoorCrypt3r Ransomware

HackdoorCrypt3r Ransomware

If the thought of losing your personal files makes you sweat profusely, HackdoorCrypt3r Ransomware is an infection you want to learn more about. Just like hundreds and thousands of other file-encrypting ransom-demanding threats, this one is all about making your personal files unreadable. Unfortunately, a complex, unique encryptor is used by this threat, which is why you cannot decrypt your files using any kind of decryption software. Are you looking for free decryptors? If you find one that claims to decrypt the files with the “.hackdoor” extension appended to their names, you want to be very careful. At the time of research, Anti-Spyware-101.com could not find free decryptors that worked. What does that leave you with? Unfortunately, your only option might seem to pay a ransom that is requested by the attackers. The thing is that this is not a real option because cybercriminals are unlikely to give you anything in return for your money. Hopefully, even if you cannot decrypt files, you can still replace them, but only after you delete HackdoorCrypt3r Ransomware. Read more »

OnyxLocker Ransomware

OnyxLocker Ransomware

When files are encrypted by OnyxLocker Ransomware, they cannot be read because there is no program that could decipher the encryptor used. The process of encryption is very simple because people can use it to protect their files; however, cybercriminals have decided to encrypt files to make money, and they have been very successful at it. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have faced an uncountable number of file-encryptors, and a few of the more recent ones include Devos Ransomware, 2048 Ransomware, and Pashka Ransomware. Some are more complex than others, and some of the threats are capable of stealing passwords, wiping data, deleting shadow copies, and doing other terrible things. Most often, however, cybercriminals stick to encryption alone because that is enough to back Windows users into a corner. If you too feel backed into a corner, you might be thinking about the option of paying the ransom, but our researchers recommend that you focus on deleting OnyxLocker Ransomware instead. Read more »

Devos Ransomware

Devos Ransomware

Devos Ransomware is one of those malicious applications that take various personal files as hostages and then show a ransom note. In this case, the malware’s note does not give instructions on how to pay a ransom to decrypt the threat’s locked files. Instead, users are asked to email the hackers behind the malware. We believe that as soon as these cybercriminals are contacted, they ought to demand a specific amount of cryptocurrencies and explain how to make a payment. Needless to say, putting your faith in such people could end up hazardously, which is why we advise not to rush into anything if you come across such a malicious application. If you want to know how to delete Devos Ransomware as well as more about how it works, we invite you to read our full report. Read more »

Hence, you need to focus on removing 2048 Ransomware from your system, and then look for ways to protect your PC from similar intruders.

Watch Movies Live

Watch Movies Live

People around the world are on a constant lookout for tools and services that can help them stream and watch movies for free. Watch Movies Live is an extension designed for Google Chrome users that might catch the attention of those kinds of people. Of course, it does not actually make it possible to stream movies for free because that is illegal, and because it simply does not have that capability. It was created for two reasons. First, it offers users access to third-party sites that are related to movies and streaming services. Second, it promotes a search tool that redirects to search.yahoo.com, or Yahoo Search. Users usually trust this service, but that is a mistake because the results are modified by the extension itself. Basically, the extension does not offer streaming services, and its search service is not trustworthy, which is why it is classified as a PUP – potentially unwanted program. Since you are reading this report, you must have decided to remove Watch Movies Live already, but if you are not yet completely sure if you want to delete this extension, we hope that we can provide you with an answer.

Pashka Ransomware

Pashka Ransomware

If you have found the “.pashka” extension attached to your personal files, Pashka Ransomware is the threat that you are dealing with. This infection could be presented to you via emails and bundled downloaders, and because cybercriminals are likely to introduce it to you in some sneaky way, you might not recognize malware. Obviously, Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that it is crucial to be careful about the emails you open or the files you download because you never know what kinds of dangers you might face. If the threat has slithered in already, you have three things to worry about. First of all, you might be looking for ways to restore your files.

SySS Ransomware

SySS Ransomware

If you are not yet sure if SySS Ransomware is the infection that encrypted your personal files and made them unreadable, you should look at the names of your files. If this is the threat that is responsible for the attack, you should find the “.id-***.[syspentest@aol.com].SySS” (*** represent unique characters) extension attached. You are free to remove this extension, but that is not something that will help you restore your files. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers are not sure you can restore your files at all, and if you find tools that claim to be capable of restoring files affected by malware, you have to be careful. That being said, this particular threat comes from the Crysis Ransomware/Dharma Ransomware family, and free decryptors have been developed by malware experts. If you are going to use third-party tools, these are the ones you should look into first. Unfortunately, nothing can guarantee full decryption, and your files will not be restored even if you delete SySS Ransomware quickly. Read more »

ROGER Ransomware

ROGER Ransomware

Once ROGER Ransomware finds a vulnerable Windows operating system and slithers in – which it usually does with the help of spam emails or unprotected RDP backdoors – it immediately encrypts files. When files are encrypted, the data is scrambled to ensure that no one can read it without the private key. Normally, this method acts as a file lock, but cybercriminals use it to lock out the owners of the files. This is done to force them to act a certain way, and if you continue reading this report, we will explain what the whole deal is. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have thoroughly inspected the malicious threat, and it is now clear that it belongs to the Crysis/Dharma Ransomware family, just like Devil Ransomware, Dever Ransomware, and hundreds of other threats whose removal we discussed in previous reports. In this report, of course, we show how to delete ROGER Ransomware. If you come up with any questions for our research team after you are done reading, add them to the comments area. Read more »
