FTCODE Ransomware

FTCODE Ransomware

Do you think about your virtual security often? If you forget about it or ignore it completely, FTCODE Ransomware is one of the threats that could use an opportunity to slither in. Skipped updated, carelessness when downloading new files/software, interaction with random ads and links, inability to make the distinction between legitimate emails and spam emails could all lead to the invasion of dangerous malware. In the case of the clandestine ransomware, spam emails are most likely to be used for the execution. Note that cybercriminals can create misleading addresses, subject lines, messages, and attachments to trick you into thinking that the email is real and reliable. If you are tricked, the infection is executed, and the encryption of your personal files begins shortly. You cannot recover the files by deleting FTCODE Ransomware, but it is crucial that you remove this threat anyway, and the sooner you get to it, the better. Read more »

Kronos Ransomware

Kronos Ransomware shows a note through which the malware’s creators try to convince their victims to pay a ransom. In exchange, the hackers promise to send a decryptor that could decipher the threat’s affected files. They even promise to prove that they have the needed decryptor by allowing their victims to send one file for free decryption. Even so, we would not recommend agreeing to pay a ransom if you do not want to risk losing your money in vain. It is possible because even if the cybercriminals have the promised recovery tools, it does not guarantee they will send them to you. In any case, it is up to you to decide what you should do. If you choose to eliminate Kronos Ransomware, we advise using the instructions available at the end of this article or a chosen antimalware tool. In case you want to get to know the threat better, we invite you to read our full article. Read more »

Koko Ransomware

When Koko Ransomware encrypts your photos, documents, and other personal and sensitive files, it changes the data of these files, and they can be read only when a special decryptor is used. That is the strength of this malicious threat because if the victim cannot restore the files or replace them with backups, they might be tricked into paying money for the decryptor proposed by the attackers. Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has analyzed thousands of file-encrypting infections, and if they have one thing in common it is that victims do not get to decrypt their files; at least, in most cases. Some of the more recent threats analogous to the ransomware we are discussing in this report include CXK-NMSL Ransomware, Erenahen Ransomware, and Sherminator Ransomware. Hopefully, you have backups, and you do not need to worry about restoring the corrupted files, but, in any case, you need to delete Koko Ransomware, and that is what we are here to help you with.

Sherminator Ransomware

Sherminator Ransomware

Sherminator Ransomware appears to be a new variation of Mr.Dec Ransomware. Same as its early version, it encrypts files and shows a ransom note. The note does not ask for a ransom as it only claims a user needs to email the malware’s developers. However, based on our experience with such threats, we believe the demands for payment could be delivered later on via email. It is vital to understand that the hackers may promise anything to convince their victims to put up with their demands, but there are no guarantees they will hold on to their promises. Meaning, even if you do as told, you might not get your files decrypted. Thus, we advise thinking twice before putting up with any demands. If you decide it is not an option, we recommend removing Sherminator Ransomware with no hesitation. To learn more about it and its deletion, we invite you to read our full article and check the instructions available below. Read more »
