Trix Ransomware

Trix Ransomware

You might not know when Trix Ransomware slithered in or what files it encrypted, but when this malware reveals itself, you are likely to be shocked. The infection attacks silently, and most victims are unlikely to pinpoint the moment of the attack. Unfortunately, when it comes to ransomware, in most cases, victims are the ones who let malware in. For example, the launcher could be camouflaged as an attractive program on unreliable download websites or P-2-P websites. It also could be camouflaged as a document or a photo file in a misleading spam email. Do you remember downloading or opening any files recently? If you do, you might figure out the source of the infection. Hopefully, you will become more cautious in the future. Right now, however, you might need to delete Trix Ransomware from your Windows operating system. If you are worried about the removal of the threat and the decryption of files, we are ready to help you. Read more »

Searchaize

Searchaize

If you want to browse the web efficiently, you have to choose a tool that will help you achieve your goals. Searchaize might represent itself as a beneficial search tool that, allegedly, can offer results you would not normally find on your own. The extension is meant to change the default search provider to ensure that the service is activated, and that should be the first sign that something is not right with the picture. As you know, most search tools can be reached through a web browser. For convenience, users can also replace their default search providers, homepages, and New Tab pages to access the chosen search tools quicker. However, it is not common to activate search tools by installing extensions that can modify search providers. Usually, if an extension offers a search tool, it usually offers that along with another, more attractive service. That is not the case with this extension, which we have identified as a PUP (potentially unwanted program). Our recommendation is that you delete Searchaize, but you should decide whether you want to remove this PUP after reading our report. Read more »

Zemblax Ransomware

Zemblax Ransomware

If Zemblax Ransomware slithered in, we know two things: your Windows operating system lacks reliable protection and you are careless online. If your system was protected, the launcher of the infection could not slip in. What if your system has a security tool installed to guard you? If important security updates are missing, you are not protected. When it comes to your own carelessness, we have to consider the possibility that you were tricked into letting the launcher of the infection in. This launcher could be presented as a document file via spam emails, as a harmless file via bundled downloaders, and so on. The ultimate goal is to make sure that the threat slithers in silently and does not alert any security tools. If those do not exist, the job is very easy. Afterward, the threat can start encrypting files, and if it completes the task successfully, the attackers get the control they need. That is because even if you delete Zemblax Ransomware, your files remain encrypted. Read more »

Welsworn.info

Welsworn.info

Welsworn.info might seem like a streaming website as it mentions an extensive movies and TV shows catalog that users are promised if they click the Allow button. Our researchers say that in reality users who do so might end up seeing annoying advertisements from different third parties on their Desktop. That is because the Allow button that this website refers to appears on a  pop-up window that claims Welsworn.info wants to show notifications. If you have noticed such content on your screen and you wish to get rid of it, we advise using our deletion instructions placed below this article. They show how to reset browser to eliminate Welsworn.info notifications. If you do not want to reset your browser, but still want to get rid of the adware server’s notifications, we advise using a legitimate antimalware tool instead. Read more »

SearchStreams

SearchStreams

We are always looking for ways to make our lives better, and SearchStreams is a tool that promises to help out with that. This extension claims that it can optimize the search results you see at search.yahoo.com, and some Google Chrome users might decide to install the extension for this very reason. Although the PUP (potentially unwanted program) can be downloaded for free from the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/searchstreams/homhffmdkacgebfnpfhokdnlgngfolck/), the experts in our research team warn that this extension is most likely to be introduced to you in other ways. Most likely, you were introduced to it when you were redirected to the installer page via an unreliable website or a misleading advertisement. Obviously, if you installed the PUP along with other questionable pieces of software, it is important that you scan your system and delete any additional threats that might exist. If all that you need to do is remove SearchStreams, we can assist you. Read more »
