Tidenous.com

Tidenous.com

Tidenous.com is an unreliable website that, according to our researchers, was built to promote suspicious applications. At the time of research, it was promoting a known PUP (potentially unwanted program) called “OneSafe PC Cleaner,” whose removal guide we created back in 2015. However, the download link that was placed on the website did not actually route to the installer of the PUP. It seems that the site is either broken or not yet fully built. Unfortunately, with slight modifications, the creator of this website could easily promote any PUP or malicious infection, and we certainly do not believe that OneSafe PC Cleaner is the only tool that it might push. Obviously, if you have been routed to this website and if you have downloaded anything promoted on it, we suggest scanning your system. Employ a trusted malware scanner, and it will help you figure out if you need to delete Tidenous.com-related threats. Once you scan the system, read this report in full to understand how this scam works. Read more »

Plenty O' Apps

Plenty O' Apps

Do you find Plenty O' Apps attractive? If you do, you might decide to install this extension onto your Google Chrome browser. Once you install it, initially, you might be completely content with what this potentially unwanted program (PUP) offers, but as you continue using it, you are likely to realize that it does not really offer anything that great. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers are not surprised by this at all, because Eightpoint Technologies Ltd. is the company that stands behind this extension, and we are very well familiar with it. That is because it also stands behind Get Recipes Now, Get Speed Test Fast, Get Search Plus, Shipment Trackers, and a ton of other suspicious extensions. Most of them are created for Google Chrome alone, which definitely minimizes the number of potential victims. That being said, Google Chrome is the most popular browser in the world, and it is used by hundreds of millions of people daily. Whether you want to remove Plenty O' Apps or learn if you want to delete it, you should keep reading. Read more »

C4H Ransomware

C4H Ransomware

Do you believe that C4H Ransomware has invaded your Windows operating system and corrupted your personal files? That is very easy to figure out because once this infection encrypts files, it attaches the “.C4H” extension to their names. This extension is added as a mere marker, and even if you delete it from the files’ names, they will not be restored. Some victims might rush to remove C4H Ransomware to restore their files, and while this threat must be eliminated from the infected systems, the files cannot be recovered in that way. In fact, we do not know if your files can be recovered at all. Perhaps you can find and employ a legitimate third-party decryptor, but you certainly do not want to trust cybercriminals to help you. They promote their own decryptor in return for money, but they are unlikely to give you anything once you send the payment. Needless to say, this is a tricky situation, but we hope that we will be able to help you untangle the mess. Read more »
